In synergy with AMSA, we have created UUMBAL, dedicated to the development of commercial plantations of tropical pine and African palm in the south of Mexico, with the purpose of promoting the progress of the Mexican countryside and efficiently producing high quality materials, with innovative technology, while protecting and preserving the environment.
Since 2011, UUMBAL has renewed cattle and forest land with a projected 24,000 acres of palm and 12,000 acres of pine.
Through this project, we help small producers, suppliers and local communities by employing around 1,500 people directly. In addition, the project has extensive conservation areas of endemic flora and fauna.
In 2017, we will start the operation of our palm oil extraction plant, the largest in Mexico, with innovative technology that will allow an efficient and environmentally friendly extraction process.
