Human development in figures

For the year 2021, in Guatemala the authorized minimum wage for agricultural work (harvest) remained at Q90.16 per day and for the rest of the industry the authorized minimum wage was Q92.88. At Magdalena the average wage earned during the 2020-2021 harvest was above the country's minimum wage.

Employment generation

The modernisation of our agricultural and industrial activities has allowed us to constantly seek to improve efficiency and increase productivity. Last year, we generated 17,047 direct jobs in all areas of our operation, which contributes to reactivating the economy of both the highlands and the South Coast during the harvest, of which 5,017 are permanent.


During the period 20-21, our training programmes reached a total of 69,859 hours distributed to 17,047 employees. The season planned from the beginning of 2020 was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, where we were forced to take other actions such as virtual trainings, informative videos, audios, in order to train our staff.


This Great Place to Work® certification is based on research into the world's best work cultures and provides leaders of organisations with objective data, benchmarks and a targeted approach to achieving significant improvements in culture and business performance.
