Environmental Stewardship in our crops

Our company is stewards of the land committed to conservation, resource management and sustainability all the while dedicated to growing safe and nutritious fruit. We manage all operations on our farms with a focus to sustain resources for future farming generations. Food safety is a critical component of our environmental commitment.

One of our most important tools for delivering safe food and nutritious fruit is our integrated pest management approach to managing the pests that seek to destroy our crops. Using IPM procedure, we measure and monitor the population densities and life cycles of both harmful pests and beneficial insects.

How we reduce our carbon footprint

We plant trees to reduce our carbon footprint. When a tree breaths, it inhales carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. This natural process helps to purify the air. We have planted Hevea brasiliensis trees or most commonly natural rubber tree around our crops.

Resource Management

Water is our most critical natural resource. We closely monitor weather, crop stage and soil moisture using instruments inside each farm in order to apply the precise amount of water for maximum fruit production. This careful monitoring of irrigation application reduces the use of fertilizer and assures ground water purity by eliminating runoff.

Healthy Soil is vital to the proper nutrition and growth of our fruit. Extensive soil sampling is conducted to determine our crop nutrient needs. We precisely balance fertilizer applications with crop load and tree growth to maximize yield and reduce inputs.

For example, as our commitment to use less chemical products, we recycle our organic banana waste such as the banana flowers.

Plastic Recycling

Part of our commitment for a healthy and safe environment is to process the waste produced in our plantations which is delivered to plastic recyclers companies in Ecuador in order to comply with our ethical obligation to maintain our sustainable quality stamps.
