Our corporate social responsibility can be seen in different ways, but it especially shines through as it pertains to our workers, environmental and social development, and nutrition and health.
Our employees dispose of the most advanced technology to undertake their jobs and we have the best equipped systems in terms of occupational safety. Additionally, training and work/life balance are important aspects of our company’s human resources policy.
We believe that ecology and respect for the environment are the unseen raw materials that give our products unique flavors and characteristics.
Therefore, at Rodríguez, we take into account our environmental values when making decisions on all levels of the chain. Currently, our new production plant has the most advanced systems and procedures in terms of environmental management.
Nutrition and Health
Because we are committed to health and healthy eating, we participate actively in consortia and associations that are experts in dining and food production. These organizations advise us when we develop products or improve existing ones. Thus, we are members of the Spanish Serrano Ham Consortium, INTERPORC (Interprofessional Agri-food Organization of White Pigs), as well as the Association for the Promotion of Chorizo of León.
The value of the pork itself, along with its nutritional value, are our roadmaps when we process all our products.
Part of our brand’s identity has to do with taking care of our animals’ health by controlling all the processes and traceability from the start of production to final distribution. We only work with animals from certified farms.
Sport: A School for Values
Since 2013, we have included sport sponsorship amongst our social activities, as sports help to represent values such as effort, discipline, and commitment.
Abanca Ademar Handball Club, the Provincial Youth Sport System, and the La Bañeza Football School are part (amongst others) of the list of sponsorships and cooperative initiatives that Rodriguez commits to in terms of sport every season.
