As a raw material producer and transformer, we believe that Hibernia Misiones plays an important part in promoting sustainable safe farming for future generations. That means working in partnership with the environment and the people to find organic solutions for our soil health and regeneration. We also thrive to provide a sustainable environment for our sugarcane providers and colleagues through safe and fair working environments.
Let’s find out what HIBERNIA MISIONES does to promote sustainability.
PEOPLE (FFL, FLO, Local community)
Following years of production with the company’s own sugarcane, Fair Trade projects with small producers’ cooperatives were a natural expansion to further expand our community reach and impact. The first project came in early 2015 with the signing of a partnership with a Guaira-based Flo-certified cooperative.
Following the success of this initiative, we added new social and agricultural certifications such as IBD EcoSocial, DEMETER, ROC and Fair For Life, which help Hibernia Misiones grow its sustainable agenda and open new markets with our global clients.
A program that allows more options to share the benefits of the premium paid by the final clients
The premium paid on the sugar sold benefits cane growers, employees of the Company, and their families
All social projects conducted by Hibernia Misiones must have an immediate, measurable positive impact
In 2019, Hibernia Misiones funded a medical facility with a doctor coming four days a week to provide free family healthcare care
In 2020, the first Fair for Life Premium received funded the creation of a social pharmacy, functioning in parallel to the medical practice.

For the future, HIBERNIA MISIONES would dream of increasing the number of committees within the employees’ association for HIBERNIA’s employees to widen the benefits of the FAIR FOR LIFE Premium on their lives. Different subjects like women empowerment, health prevention could be some of the matters tackled in those new committees and which require a higher involvement of both HIBERNIA MISIONES and its customers.
Working together on increasing our impact and your impact as customers of HIBERNIA MISIONES goes obligatory through the transparency of our actions. We are regularly audited by the social certification bodies which help us to always reach an even better level of compromise and social involvement and we also regularly receive customers’ audits to be on top of the expectations of our clients and the end customers in terms of direct and transparent sourcing.
