Creating pathways to empowerment.
By staying true to our mission, values and guiding principles, we have proven it is possible to build a world class company that creates opportunity for the global family of people we work with, and the communities they serve. It’s an important responsibility, so we focus on the areas where we believe we can have the biggest impact – building a future with farmers and their communities, creating pathways to opportunity for young people, and transforming agriculturally dependent communities around the world.
“This is bigger than growing the world’s most flavorful fruit. It’s about cultivating what you value… community.”
Going beyond the farm.
We believe in growing fruit that lasts. Our family of farmers have families of their own, belong to villages and communities, and live fruitful lives outside of our fields. We view our local and global footprint as an opportunity to immerse ourselves in these communities through the lens of servant leaders.
In the communities where our farms are located, we have prioritized hiring locally, and from within the villages closest to our ranches. This enables us to provide employment with health benefits and have a seismic economic impact on their livelihoods.
In the years since breaking ground in Peru, we have built new roads and worked with local municipalities to provide clean energy for surrounding communities.
Safety & supplies
We support local institutions including the local Red Cross, schools, and the police departments. We also provide hygiene items, sports uniforms and equipment to our farming communities.
Food & water
We provide safe and clean drinking water to the villages and towns in our farm’s surrounding communities.
