At Walmart Puerto Rico, we believe in making a difference on the issues our customers and communities care about. We believe we can create more local jobs and contribute to the economy by supporting products manufactured and grown on the Island. Activating the agriculture and manufacturing sectors of our economy requires a collective effort from companies, industry leaders, lawmakers and others. As a company we are committed in driving these initiatives which will create more jobs and ultimately strengthen our Island’s economy.
Together, we can help spark a revitalization of Puerto Rico based manufacturing and agriculture. By making production more affordable and feasible on the Island, we can bring our customers more locally made products and, in turn, farmers and manufacturers can create more jobs in Puerto Rico.
