Corporación Multi-Inversiones (CMI) delivered medical equipment to the Hospital Center in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, which will be the hospital adapted for emergencies and Covid-19 patients in the western highlands of the country.

The donation – which was delivered to the Government of Guatemala – includes X-ray units, respirators, infusion pumps, defibrillators, hospital beds, UPS and electrical transformers among others, with capacity to serve 125 patients in regular beds and 18 in the intensive care unit.

This region is important to CMI, because it was the place where Juan Bautista Gutiérrez started the undertaking that gave rise to CMI, 100 years ago.

The Presidents-Chairmen of the group, Juan Luis Bosch and Juan José Gutiérrez, delivered the donation, equivalent to eight million quetzals (1 million USD), on behalf of their shareholders and workers. The entire sum was invested in equipment for the Hospital Center in Quetzaltenango.

“For several weeks now, we have provided support through different mechanisms, in several of the countries where we operate, with the donation of food through Pollo Campero, for institutions dedicated to handling emergencies, medical supplies for hospitals, as well as the donation of food to municipalities of our communities. Today, with pride and affection, we are present in the region that saw us born 100 years ago”, said Juan José Gutiérrez, President Chairman of CMI Foods.

CMI reiterated its commitment to continue working through its operations with responsibility and commitment, to ensure supply of food and of essential services such as energy for the population and families of the countries where it operates.

“Our main responsibility is to continue working and supporting the safety and hygiene provisions at our food and energy operations to ensure supply and services to families in need. Together we can move forward” stated Juan Luis Bosch, President Chairman of CMI Capital.

CMI’s businesses include, in the CMI Foods cluster, the wheat flour milling, pasta, cookies and crackers production businesses; poultry, pork, processed and sausage manufacturing industry; balanced food for animals and pets; restaurant industry, with its Pollo Campero brand, among others.
