Health and well-being
We know that research is fundamental to progress and improvement, and that is why we actively collaborate with Asociación Española contra el Cancer, association against cancer. We also cooperate with the Caminantes association that works to improve the conditions of children who are fighting this disease.

In addition, every year, we participate in charity races that promote sports and donate their proceeds to various NGOs.
Education and equality
We sponsor the best students of agricultural universities through scholarships. Every year, we hold the Idai Nature Awards for the best Academic Records. We have created our own chair at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) through which we organise free outreach conferences and informative seminars.

These features maximise profitability with minimum environmental impact by saving thousands of litres of water.
