Mesoamerican Nephropathy (MeN) Awareness

About Ingenio San Antonio

Who We Are?

Ingenio San Antonio (ISA) is a sugar mill in Nicaragua owned by the company Nicaragua Sugar Estates Limited (NSEL). Founded in 1890, it is the largest and most modern sugar mill in the country.

What We Do

Ingenio San Antonio was established as a sugar mill, however, over time it has diversified into a modern, efficient and eco-friendly agro-energy mill. It’s dedicated to the production and processing of sugar, biofuel, alcohol, electrical energy and molasses.

Our Purpose

Raise awareness on the epidemic of Mesoamerican Nephropathy (MeN), provide third parties with a database of peer-reviewed papers and reports on MeN and communicate the efforts being done by Ingenio San Antonio (ISA) to discover the cause, help those afflicted by the disease and prevent future cases. As well as to show the impact ISA has had throughout the years with their CSR practices, focusing on the well being of its workers.
