SanLucar has received the Hannon Award “for the Promotion of Co-Development through Responsible Investment” in a ceremony that took place in Bercy-Paris last Thursday, October 10th.

Among a total of 20 companies participating in the second edition of these awards, SanLucar was declared the winner in the category of significant regional investment in Tunisia.

Specifically, this trophy recognizes the company’s contribution to the social and economic development in the region El Hamma-Gabès with its farm “La Cinquième Saison”. SanLucar has been operating in the area since 2008 and has become one of the leading employers there.

Furthermore, the premium brand for fruits and vegetables contributes significantly to a social and cultural progress in the region through different actions. It participates in the ministerial program “Companies as Partners of Schools” and finances projects with the aim to improve educational institutions. The company also cooperates with various regional organizations such as AGIM (general association of motor deficit), ATAS (Tunisian association for assistance for the deaf) or UTAIM (Tunisian union for assistance for the mentally disabled).

Moreover, SanLucar was the first company in Tunisia to receive the GRASP certificate which values special social management in the agricultural sector. The premium brand currently employs about 1.500 people in Northern and Southern Tunisia, mainly in the field of tomato and berry cultivation. In 2018, it has received the National Prize for Social Progress awarded by the former president of the Tunisian Republic, Béji Caïd Essebsi.

The first edition of the Hannon Awards “for the Promotion of Co-Development through Responsible Investment” took place in 2018 as an initiative of the Confederation of Tunisian Citizen Enterprises (CONNECT) and the Network of Excellence in the Mediterranean, Med 21.
