Alliance: We are a Chilean company, which since 1991 has worked to provide the best service to our producers, creating a strategic and reliable alliance over time.
We, as a production team, are technically prepared to anticipate the needs of each producer. Our idea is to retain them through competitive settlements and advising them on a day-to-day basis as well as long-term decisions.
What makes us different from the rest is that we take care of every detail in our production chain. Always reviewing the established procedure with what is really happening to avoid deviations from what is projected. After all, in this game, the one who makes the least mistakes gets better results.
For me it has been very pleasant to join the Geofrut family in 2017, where we have incorporated policies to increase and improve commercial relations with producers from different areas of the country. We have treated each one of them in a more personalized way, giving them a very strong technical focus and confident in that with transparency and professionalism we will maintain long-term relationships.
