Innovating our way up the value chain

Throughout the years, the Group has diversified into numerous areas of business, having controlling interest in a vast number of companies, with presence in the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean region and South America.

The acceptance and growth of our brand in the Dominican Republic allowed us to open our first concept store in the United States. Creativity, talent and experience have driven us to expand our product lines beyond the traditional recipes that were initially conceived.
