Carvajal: Packing a great service

Article - April 8, 2014
Carvajal looks to be a provider of choice for products and services, sustaining excellent quality
COLOMBIA
Created in 1904 in Cali, Carvajal is one of the best-known names in Colombia’s corporate world, synonym of entrepreneurship and innovation. Today, this printing, packaging and digital publishing conglomerate is present in 15 countries and has 26,000 employees. It is also a leader in social commitment. The Carvajal Foundation invests 30,000 million pesos a year (US$15 million) in social initiatives. 
 
“We finance a great number of small projects,” says Carvajal President, Bernardo Quintero. “Our main focus is education and the promotion of entrepreneurship, mostly among family businesses.” 
 
The foundation is particularly active in Cali, one of Colombia’s most dynamic economic centers, which, according to Mr. Quintero, is particularly attractive for investors. “There is a very qualified labor force, good energy supply, we are close to a major port, and it’s a peaceful region,” he says.
