Superbom (Chile) (CL)

A food plant located on the campus of the Adventist University of Chile. Under the direction of Alajo Pizzaro, director of the food company for the South American Division, this plant was started in 1976. Its first line of products was canned fruit, vegetables, and school-size prepared meals. Shortly after, dried fruit (especially pears and apples) were added for export to Europe. Later lines of concentrated juices and processed milk were started. In 1993, 20 tons of dried fruit was produced monthly, with 110 people working three daily shifts. Total sales were US$378,400. In June 1992 management of this industry was turned over to the university. Managers: Aurelio Vega Tapia, 1977-1981; Raul Perez Perez, 1989-1990; Roger Gonzalez Palma, 1991-1992.
