Natural Habitats Group’s values include taking care of people we work with, who live nearby our plantations and everyone involved in our business process. All together, we think of everyone involved as a family, we name it – ‘Familia Organica’. The key role in this family we dedicate to our organic farmers, with whom we work. For the purpose of bringing organic farmers together, empowering them and enabling exchange of information among them, we organized Farmers’ Association. President of Farmers’ Assoication is Fausto Orozco, farmer himself and in past worked for ANCUPA (National Association of Palm Growers). (left on the picture)
‘Familia Organica’ has grown now to a large group of people, who share common views and values, related to the environment, food and sustainability. We think, of the ‘Familia Organica’ as a way of life. This philosophy involves caring about social development, preserving nature and supplying high quality food.
We ensure that our farmers are educated in organic farming and comply with its standards. To support farmers, we encourage: premium prices, trainings, visits, advisory from our agronomist, micro financing, picking up crops in remote locations and other agricultural support.
‘Familia Organica’ is not only targeted on farmers, but local communities as well. Therefore, we contribute to social improvement, by developing sports, education, quality of nutrition and medical care programs. We allocate 1 % of our revenues each year to the social programs, we work on.
Through these projects we represent the ‘Familia Organica’ values.
Our social programs include: football training for kids, where professional coachers work on the motivation and discipline for more than 100 children and teenagers. We supply learning materials and computers to elementary schools. We supply two health centres, built by us, with medicines and doctors. From time to time, we also organize educational workshops for locals. Our social responsibility officer visits the communities and reports the needs and social problems which allow us to develop training sessions for locals.
The ‘Familia Organica’ philosophy is also very important for our customers. Natural Habitats Group carefully selects customers and works with those, whose values comply with ours.
