12Tree

The arrival of the German 12Tree Finance fund also stands out in the agribusiness sector. They have a strong rural focus, including forest plantation programs in Puerto Carreño, Vichada, a biomass plant in the Orinoquia region, and cocoa crops in the Middle Magdalena and Urabá regions.

The German company’s operation has created 150 jobs and involved an estimated investment of US $85 million.
