Investing in people to be the protagonists of change.


We believe that a socially responsible company has the ability to listen to and take into account the interests of the multiple parties involved in a business (shareholders, employees, suppliers, consumers, the community, the government and the environment) and incorporate them into the planning of its activities.


We develop collaboration agreements and alliances with universities, civil society and business organizations and public institutions under the modality of Private Social Investment and the Promotion of Social Responsibility.

Seeking to align our priorities with those of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we currently invest in projects that contribute to eradicating poverty (SDG 1), promoting good health and well-being (SDG 3), quality education (SDG 4), job creation and economic growth (SDG 8) and the promotion of scientific research for the conservation of the marine ecosystem (SDG 14, Life below water).


The two pillars of our strategy:

Private social investment

Investing time, talent and material and economic resources in order to build a future with opportunities for all.

Promotion of social responsibility

With the conviction that the best results are achieved when working as a team and collaborating with others, Glaciar Pesquera has always sought to develop synergies with other companies for the promotion of good business practices, training its employees in social responsibility and holding meetings for sharing and debating successful and unsuccessful social responsibility experiences.

FortaleceRSE: a group that promotes Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Mar del Plata

Since 2012, Glaciar Pesquera has driven the creation of an entrepreneurial group promoting CSR in Mar del Plata. The group is made up of companies from Mar del Plata and the rest of the country, with a strong presence in the city.

This project began as a program run by teachers and students of agricultural sciences and aimed at unemployed persons in Mar del Plata and consisted of agroecological subsistence farming in community gardens and farms. The growth of the project allowed for the creation of the Green Fair, a space where entrepreneurs sell agroecological and processed or related products, such as garden tools, sprouts, natural cosmetics, plants and seedlings, sweets and pickles, honey, eggs and baked goods.
