My father, Don Luis Roman was born in this mango region and never thought that his roots would dictate his future. My father has a lot of memories from his childhood. As a child his parents put him to bed quite early, and when the room was dark and silent, he and his siblings could hear ripe mangoes falling from the trees. Whoever was the first to hear a mango fall to the ground would exclaim: “That one’s mine! I heard it first!” So, theoretically, the first one to hear this sound would become the owner, but obviously in practice it was the first person to wake up in the morning and go pick the fruit up who would eat it in the end.
In 1993 he got his first mango farm but he still remembered his childhood years when he was eating the most delicious mangoes from his yard without any sort of pesticides and chemicals and this was the passion that made him convert his plantations in 2000 to organic .
