MEXICO COMBINES UNPARALLELED CONDITIONS TO GROW HIGH QUALITY ORGANIC TROPICAL FRUITS
Nested outside the traditional tropical belt, where conventional banana suppliers are located, Mexico has natural conditions much more adequate for organic production.
Tropical fruits require substantial amounts of water to grow. Tropical areas have the necessary annual rainfall for the development of such fruits. However, these extremely humid areas are also perfect environments to various fruit diseases, highly difficult to combat in an organic environment.
Conventional fruit production benefits from the use of chemicals to combat such diseases. However, organic production does not allow for the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, thus, limiting the expansion of organic production in tropical areas.
Certain subtropical areas are less humid, with lower annual rainfalls, but abundance of surface water available for irrigation, such as rivers. These areas have the appropriate conditions to grow organic produce in a natural way and satisfy the growing appetite for organic produce. We aspire to fulfill this gap and exploit the opportunity.
