At AC, we firmly believe in the honest, upright, and transparent behavior of our company and all the people who interact with it, every day, and in all our activities.
Ethical principles are the foundation on which all AC professionals base their actions and decision-making.
Our mission is to improve people’s lives by developing systems that preserve food in the healthiest and most environmentally friendly way.

We are committed to the needs of society and the different communities in which we operate.
Most of our employees are local residents, so our social and economic impact on the communities is very important, as drivers of employment creation and economic development.
We are in close and direct contact with communities, which has allowed us to collaborate closely in the resolution of local problems. An example of this is the reforms carried out at the Torrealta factory, in which the access needs of the irrigation community were taken into account and the construction of a new road was adapted to meet their requests. In addition, the new road involved the improvement of an area including lighting and landscaped areas that help to better integrate the urbanization with the rural environment in which we find ourselves.
We participate in and sponsor multiple cultural, social, and local sports promotion activities. We also collaborate with foundations to promote the employability and incorporation into the labor market of people with disabilities and with entities dedicated to integrating disadvantaged groups such as Jesús Abandonado, Cáritas, and Obra Social La Caixa.
Towards the Future.
At AC we want to continue growing economically, caring for the environment, supporting the principles that unite us and believing in the human potential of our company and our ability to help those who need it most. That is why we are looking toward the future through our first Corporate Social Responsibility Strategic Plan.
In each of our areas of action, we undertake different commitments to all our stakeholders and the firm commitment to promote the Sustainable Development Goals and the achievement of their targets towards the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations, especially those linked to our activities:
In addition, AC is affiliated in the collaborative platform Sedex as a supplier member.
