Stakeholder Engagement

We build and consolidate long-lasting partnerships and quality interaction with consumers, suppliers, partners, employees, investors, the media, communities, regulatory entities and other institutions, through specific communication channels. That is how we aim to make sure we are better aligned with their needs and expectations.
