De Aquí Con Corazón

De Aquí Con Corazón represents the vision and the support CCN extends to local small business owners and entrepreneurs. To accomplish this, we work hand in hand with providers that produce specialty high-quality products, helping them to improve their processes, formalize their businesses, and make their products available for the clients in our stores, thus bringing pride to what’s local, while promoting the development of these communities.

More than a decade ago, Centro Cuesta Nacional set out to travel the country, but in a different way.
This is how Orgullo de Mi Tierra, was born, an invitation to rediscover ourselves and bring to light hundreds of treasures hidden in the corners of our lands, in people’s smiles, in the colors that fill our landscapes, and in the strength of the stories of hundreds of men and women making a difference in their communities, filling our hearts with pride.

Furthermore, we support local production, with programs offering accompaniment to all kinds of providers. From the program “De aquí con corazón”, which supports small business owners with the merchandising of their products through our stores, like strategic projects such as “Origen Nacional”, a line of fresh and natural products developed hand in hand with local providers focusing on high quality processes, while supporting the national productive system.

We firmly believe that we can achieve a better environment through sustainable actions.

For this reason, we have taken a series of internal measures to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.

Some of the primary measures are:
Promotion and massification of reusable bags in different sizes and formats.

Introduction of paper bags in some areas of the supermarkets.

Exhibition of fruits and vegetables in bulk, eliminating most of the plastic packaging in this category.

Introduction of packaging in biodegradable or compost materials.

Installed solar panels to use renewable energy for our operations.

Use of energy-efficient LED lighting, saving up to an 80% electrical consumption.

In alliance with Evergo, we offer charging stations for electric vehicles in stores from Punta Cana to Santiago.

Plastic bottle recycling: 5 drop off points are available in Santo Domingo (3 in Supermercados Nacional, one in Jumbo, and another in our corporate offices).

The company is committed to expanding its residue recovery plans by promoting responsible management and contributing to its sustainability plans.

CCN regularly contributes, through collaborations with non-profit institutions, to the most vulnerable communities, such as the elderly and those working for children or in education. The company also offers, through our stores, direct support to those communities where we are located throughout the country.

Don Bosco Salesian Foundation

Since 2001 we have supported the Don Bosco Salesian Foundation through fixed donations and activities looking to benefit the families helped by the organization and other initiatives.

During the pandemic, to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on Dominican families, we launched “Juntos podemos más”, a platform that invited all Dominicans to donate basic foods for those families in vulnerable situations.
