This past Friday, the president of Seaboard Energías Renovables y Alimentos, Oscar Rojo, along with managers and workers, participated in the last sugarcane overturn of Zafra 102.
With the sound of the sirens, the harvesters led the parade through the main street of El Tabacal, with all the workers and their families, greeting and celebrating. Later with trucks and vans with Argentine flags, they toured the streets of Hipólito Yrigoyen to the greeting of the neighbors.
Rojo also greeted those who had to remain at their workplaces for operational reasons at the plant. In a message to the workers, he especially thanked the effort, energy and teamwork of the “great Seaboard family” and expressed his hope to repeat this celebration with more force, next year.
