C.I. Uniban S.A's. social foundation was created in 1987 in the banana growing region of Uraba with the name of Fundauraba and began its social actions with a housing project. In 1989, after analyzing and reformulating its philosophy, methodology and mission, the foundation changed its name to Fundación Social de Uniban –FUNDAUNIBAN- and defined some priority intervention areas according to the most pressing needs of the inhabitants of various communities.
At the end of 1990, the banana producers that exported from Santa Marta through Expocaribe, an affiliate of C.I. Uniban S.A., decided to also contribute to Fundauniban to start programs and projects in the Magdalena banana growing region to improve the quality of life of the population.
We can now say that over the past several years, Fundauniban has maintained a strategic planning process that is aimed at reinforcing its leadership in the banana growing regions and maintaining a clear vision of the future with methodological principles based on education, participation, negotiation, and sustainable development.
