  • We only collaborate with known growers and plants.
  • We keep demanding and checking that our partners do things right, so we can guarantee sustainability from farm to table.

Water usage: how do we operate?

  • By using smart water techniques, water is used in its most efficient way.
  • In Mexico 90% of the water comes from rain. In our area the rainfall is 1000 to 2000 mm. We have more water than we use.
  • In Northern Peru water comes from the Andes. Together with the rainwater, it gets collected in reservoirs so it can be used for irrigation.
  • In Peru these 4 desert valleys became avocado orchard thanks to the CHAVIMOCHIC project

    • Viru
    • Moche
