Our Business Model


Sourcing

Our philosophy “from the roots up” starts here. We try to buy directly from farmers or farm cooperatives, etc. to maximize the value for both ends of the chain, i.e., the grower and the consumer. Here we lay the foundations for relationships that would last for generations.
By working directly with the growers, we are able to understand better their problems, and what we can change in our processes to maximize their returns and strengthen the grower community. This ties in with our philosophy of a strong and prosperous grower being the foundation of a strong and prosperous society.
