One Tree for Every Ton of Oils Sold

In 2023, for every ton of oils sold in Spain, they planted a tree. As Risso® keeps expanding its presence, so does our contribution to reforest damaged forests in Spain.

The HIP Fair: A Burger, A Tree

During the HIP 2023 Fair, another exciting initiative immerged. Karim Casado Martínez, Channel Marketing Manager PBFS Food Service: “For each burger we served during the three-day event, we planted a tree. By the end of the fair, we committed to planting 880 trees!”

Tree-planting teambuilding

As Risso® keeps expanding its presence, so does our contribution to reforest damaged forests in Spain.

This reforestation initiative isn't just about planting trees; it's a powerful move against climate change and biodiversity loss. Discover more actions around these topics in our new Annual Integrated Report, that will be published by the end of March 2024.
