Drummond Participated in the Third U.S.-Colombia Business Summit and Helped Launched a Cacao Initiative
December 10, 2019

Drummond Company’s CEO, Richard Mullen and Drummond Ltd.’s Colombia President, José Miguel Linares, participated in the most recent U.S.-Colombia Business Summit held in Cartagena. The event, organized by ANDI and the United States Chamber of Commerce, had as its objective to strengthen cooperation, commercial relationships, and investments between both countries.

Within the framework of this Summit, Drummond signed the Memorandum of Understanding to support the “Cocoa for Colombia: A Sustainable Initiative” program. This multi-player project seeks to integrate small farmers within the cacao to chocolate supply chain, through social investment. The initiative, driven by Vicki Hollub, Chair of the U.S.-Colombia Business Council, also has the support of Occidental Petroleum, Citi, and Coca-Cola. The President of Colombia, Iván Duque, received a signed copy of this agreement during the event.

“We are excited about this project and we hope that it will truly transform agricultural productivity, increase family income, produce and market chocolate with a social brand, empower women in the community to participate in the cacao value chain, and create a climate-intelligent model that can possibly be replicated in all the communities that grow this product in Colombia,” said Mullen.

On the other hand, Linares expressed that: “We see this program with a lot of optimism, since it aligns with one of the pillars in our Sustainability Strategy: Integral Development, which promotes and supports economic activities for the creation of a sustainable and productive future beyond the mining activity, and in benefit of the communities in our area of influence.”
