What our logo stands for
We chose the image and typography of Cono to represent the fertility of the area in which we are active. The figurative element suggests a human hand, symbolising the endeavour and aspirations of the people who work the land, plant seeds and wait for harvest – always trusting that their effort will be rewarded. The open and receptive hand is to describe the act of giving, offering the fruits of our labour to the world. The open hand is also meant as a gesture of solidarity and support from a company that is committed to the environment and to the society in which we operate. In silhouette, the hand may be seen as an inverted cone representing the silhouette of South America. Our logo can also stand for the profile of a small plant, one that has to be nurtured and cared for by the farmer in an endless cycle of sustainable growth. Finally, in terms of colour, the scale of chromatic green represents excellence in the sector, and a darker shade is used to highlight the form of the hand.
