We are a social enterprise evolved into one of the leading all organic, vertically integrated fresh fruit groups.

We were founded in 2005 with the goal of lifting farmers out of poverty in rural Mexico. By the early 2010s we've grown into one of the largest organic and fair trade fruit exporter in Latin America.

Today, we have supply and farmer development offices in three countries, and close relationships with socially and environmentally responsible growers across three continents.

This is how we are able to offer healthy fruit with impact to Europe and North America all year round.

Through our export and development offices, we provide organic training, support and resources that enable the smallest farmers to grow sustainably, while also growing as a business.

At the same time, we monitor environmental risks and organic integrity, and we run projects that restore biodiversity and help the community.

Our tight supply chain results in increased sustainability and better feedback loops, as well as savings that we reinvest in our impact.
