We are located in Cali, the third largest Colombian city, in a semi-tropical inter-Andean valley close to the Colombian Pacific Coast. With a great climate all year round, the city is known for its warm, friendly and cheerful people, its festive nature, and its dynamic economy. Cali is home to some of the most important agro-industrial, pharmaceutical, health, and consumer products clusters in the country, and it is the strategic, administrative and logistics hub for international trade via the Pacific ocean.
