How did it come about?

Monterojo arises in April 2015 as a degree project, where its founders had the purpose of establishing a legally constituted company in Colombia. This required creating and manufacturing a product. It was so well received, that the 4 young people formally partnered and made MonteRojo a reality. They began to develop new flavors such as BBQ and habanero garlic. They created healthy sauces with no preservatives, no artificial flavorings, no sugar, no calories and no sodium. 

As a marketing strategy they did several tastings of their sauces on nachos, and surprisingly the public found the sauces and the nachos very appealing. Seeing the need and audience, they began to create their own brand of nachos differentiated with the use of sea salt, giving it a more premium touch. Little by little they implemented more products such as potatoes, plantains and yuccas, always aimed at a healthy and gourmet market.

What makes MonteRojo different

When looking for snacks and sauces it is normal to find many options, but very few are healthy, premium and gourmet. MonteRojo ® products meet these expectations and much more… They are snacks and sauces made with plant-based ingredients and oils. They improve digestion and make you feel more satisfied throughout the day.

MonteRojo and the environment

  1. We work with corrugated cardboard in 6-pack, 8-pack, and 12-pack multi-packs using biodegradable plastic with a much more environmentally friendly ink.
  2. Our sauces come in recyclable glass bottles, thus reducing the impact of plastic on the environment.
  3. Internally, we have a recycling area in our company. We also separate waste and recycle paper.
  4. We encourage our employees to collect for them the recycling that results from our company so that they can sell it, thus contributing to the care of the environment and at the same time benefiting monetarily.

MonteRojo and its social work

  1. They hire staff in a very equitable manner, with no preferences in relation to gender or race.
  2. They are interested in hiring people with low incomes and make sure they are very punctual in paying for their work.
  3. They provide support in difficult times. Due to the pandemic many of the employees’ children had to attend their virtual classes but did not have a computer to study, Monterrojo selflessly provided them with these tools.
  4. At UAU! which is the healthy brand, they have a program with a foundation called Alma Rosa. This foundation is dedicated to the prevention of breast cancer in women and they provide support by donating 1% of the profits from the sale of all products.
