UNITY MAKES STRENGTH
In 2010 Jesús Alberto Cruz Díaz heard talk of organic foods. After further analysis, he found that the production lines of organic foods needed to guarantee traceability in order to achieve products of high quality. He also recognized the importance of organic fertilizer as a tool to meet said end.
Following a conversation between Jesús and his family about the idea of producing organic fertilizer, they decided to support him, so unconditionally that his father quit his job in order to join his business plan. That is how, in 2010, Organicos del Caribe is born from a great idea and only two employees, Jesús and his father.
In 2011, with the support of the Center for Entrepreneurship of la Universidad del Norte, Jesús and his father made the decision to participate in the entrepreneurship contest VENTURES, in which they did not get first place. However, thanks to the outcome, they reconsidered their complete business plan. In 2012, they competed once again in VENTURES, and for the first time in DESTAPA FUTURO, winning both contests.
Using the seed money earned, father and son industrialized their production process, increasing their production capacity and improving the quality of their organic fertilizer NUTRIABON.
In the year 2013, María Teresa Cruz Díaz, Jesús’ sister, joined Organicos del Caribe. With her support and dynamism, the company grew exponentially, allowing the bettering of its business model. Because of this, in that same year Organicos del Caribe won a corporate merit award organized by la Universidad Simón Bolívar in the category Corporate Responsibility.
Organicos del Caribe is currently recognized for its excellent selective collection of organic residue service, and the production of high quality organic fertilizer to be used in the Colombian farming industry.
Corporate Merit Award
In 2013, la Universidad Simón Bolícar carried out the fourth version of their contest Corporate Merit Award, where Organicos del Caribe was awarded first place in the category Corporate Social Responsibility, for its commitment to the mitigation of environmental impact generated by organic residue in the caribbean region, and for providing companies of all industries an appropriate way to dispose of their organic residue.
In the version of the Ventures contest in 2011, Organicos del Caribe was a finalist in the category “Sustainable use of Biodiversity”. The company competes for a second time in 2012, winning the category Región Caribe among over 75 entrepreneurship projects. This award was give by EPM for innovation applied to business models.
In 2012, in the sixth version of the contest Destapa Futuro, Organicos del Caribe achieved second place in the environmental category, among over 4.500 entrepreneurship projects at national level, thanks to its countless positive environmental contributions due to the transformation of organic residue into organic fertilizing for the farming industry.
