In order to continue promoting an environment of respect for human rights, Agrícola Chaparral and Agroindustrias Tombell, members of our Veggies From Mexico community and the Human Rights State Committee (Comisión Estatal de los Derechos Humanos Sinaloa, or CEDH), signed a new cooperation agreement to promote training activities to encourage, respect, protect and guarantee human rights of both administrative and field personnel.
According to data of the Human Rights State Committee (Comisión Estatal de los Derechos Humanos Sinaloa, or CEDH), from 2016 to November 2021, CEDH has lectured 17 trainings, benefiting 727 workers from Agroindustrias Tombell, S. A. de C.V., whereas in Agrícola Chaparral S. de P.R. de R.L., 56 trainings have been performed, for a total of 2012 benefited workers.
Farmer Sergio R. Esquer Peiro, CEO of both companies, celebrated the signature of this agreement, and committed to continue working in benefit of the human rights of all his workers, as this is increasingly demanded by both domestic and foreign markers, in social responsibility standards.
José Carlos Álvarez Ortega, CEO of CEDH Sinaloa, stated that even without the signature of this agreement, the organization has already been working on training about human rights with the personnel of both companies. After signing the document, the duty to encourage, respect, protect and guarantee the human rights of both administrative and field personnel becomes formal.
The signature of this cooperation agreement, performed at CEDH facilities, was attended by the general visitor Miguel Ángel Calderón Espinoza, and executive secretary Juliana Araujo Coronel.
