MEET YOUR GROWER AND THE HISTORIES BEHIND OF OUR FRUITS
Meet your grower allows you to discover the origin, love and quality that we leave in each product. In Etnico we work together with our Colombian growers, who are the most important part into our process. That’s why we have the initiative of promote the valuable work they make and show the histories behind of each fruit which they grow and harvest. Mainly we work with small families of farmers in Cundinamarca and Meta departments, where they produce banana, mango, pineapple and strawberry. All their fruits are produced under international quality standard GAP (Good Agricultural Practices), the majority of them are members of CCI (Corporación Colombia Internacional), one of our partner specialized in agricultural associativity.
In each tag with QR code that you find in our packagings, it will link you here, where you can know the origin and all the history behind of the fruit that you are close to consume.
We invite you to delight with the flavors of the Colombian fruits and promote the work of people that make it possible.
