Sustainable Juice Covenant is growing

Latest member to join: Citromax

Citromax, a large producer and processor of lemons based in Tucuman, Argentina, has recently joined IDH’s Sustainable Juice Covenant.

As a supplier into global beverage and flavor supply chains, Citromax also has a strong focus on sustainability; its sustainability policy is well-aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and is integrated across Citromax’s business operations. At farm-level, Citromax is also working extensively with FSA (Farm Sustainability Assessment) under the SAI Platform.

On behalf of the Citromax Group we are proud to join the commitment to work towards 100% sustainable juice production.  As growers we realize that preserving an environment that generously bears fruit is a must if we are engaged in providing a healthy future for coming generations.  As processors, we feel we have a key role in supplying not only safe and healthy juices but also products that are sustainable over time and mindfully produced. We know that joining the Covenant gives us the opportunity to work together with the influential companies of this industry on a common goal for a promising future.

Said, Christian Hamilton, Management System Head at Citromax.

We are honored to be a part of this excellent group of companies, who perform the responsibilities and actions to preserve our environment. Future challenges will be surpassed with hard work and commitment, understanding that business practices should be done differently to make our world a better place for all living beings.

We deal daily with the worldwide situations that show humans the need for change. It’s our time to start working as growers & processors to offer sustainable products to not only answer the new demand for sustainability but also to push for it with commitment.

added Mariano Sangronis, Commercial Manager and Head of Fresh Fruit Sales at Citromax.

Citromax’s membership is a significant addition to the Sustainable Juice Covenant, and we look forward to working together towards 100% sustainable sourcing.
