We are brother and sister and come from a farming family that have farmed in this region for many years. This area is also known for the ancient Mayan civilization which was ruled by a dynasty of 16 kings between roughly A.D. 426 and 820. Today we are growing both conventional and organic sweet potatoes in the rich Mayan soil.
We work with the local community and are proud of the fact that 80% of our employees are woman. We specifically want to employ woman because in this part of the world they are particularly vulnerable. The income they earn not only helps support their families but has a positive impact on the whole community. The sweet potato is growing in popularity not only because it is delicious and easy to prepare but also exceptionally healthy. Furthermore, with a growing global population the sweet potato is seen as a perfect product which provides a healthy diet and can feed a lot of people, due to its quite simple growing conditions.
