What is our campaign about?

 

Today in Mexico, 8.6 million growers produce your food in their fields. Do you know how many of these growers live in conditions of poverty? 9 out of 10 !

 

Do you know that 1 out of every 3 avocados consumed in the world is from Mexico? On the other side we see that in Europe 1 grapefruit or 1 mango costs almost 1 euro (more than 20 pesos), while the growers receive only 2 or 3 pesos per kilo produced! So I ask you … how come so many producers are still living in poverty ? A change is needed urgently, Mexico is rich, let us share this richness equally!

 

What do we do for Mexico and how have we helped farmers until now?

We help small growers from Michoacan to take their fruits to Europe without an intermediary, so our growers can obtain the profits of their products and their work.

 

Actually we support almost 1500 small agricultural producers and benefit more than 6000 families dedicated to the daily work in the fields.
 

 

How are we going to use your funds?

Our objective is to take the next step as organization and work with as many small producers as possible, and to reach that goal, we have the opportunity to participate in Unreasonable Mexico, the largest business accelerator in Mexico, where we will be enriching our platform during 4 weeks, together with experienced business people, high level mentors, national and international investors and other extraordinary people. This allows us to create a support community that can help us improve the lives of at least 5,000 small producers and 20,000 families in the next 5 years.

 

To transform the lives of small growers of Mexico is an enormous task, but with UPM you can share this opportunity and be part of this transformation".
