Empresas Polar: a symbol of resistance amid Venezuela crisis
Hated by country's leaders, loved by the people, food producer has shown
huge resilience during turmoil

When Lorenzo Mendoza attends baseball games, crowds treat him like a star
player. Baseball is Venezuela's national sport and Mendoza, head of the
Caracas-based food and drink producer Empresas Polar and once an avid
amateur player, remains a big follower. His company sponsors several of the
country's leading teams.

Venezuela is wrestling with its worst social, political, and economic crisis
in living memory, however, and his sporting passion is not the main reason
why the fans have greeted him with cheers and chants of support. Not only
does his company stand out as a rare case of Venezuelan business resilience
at a desperate time, but Mendoza himself has become a symbol of resistance.
