Impact, special achievements & commitmentsThey are a Peruvian company that works with local communities from a diverse range of locations in their country like the Amazon rainforest, the Andes highlands and the desert. They seek not only customer satisfaction, but also going beyond by building together and providing valuable tools and knowledge for their people’s growth.
Nature is one of the Earth’s most valuable treasures. This is why they are passionate about delivering the best fresh products and are highly committed both with the environment and in exceeding the industry’s quality standards.
They are never satisfied. This is the reason why they get involved in all of the product phases, from the sowing up to the product export. They aim to periodically visit their clients overseas to ensure their total satisfaction and get a direct feedback of their needs.
In La Grama’s own farm they sow under biodynamic principles and experiment with all sorts of organic farming techniques, in order to select the best ones for their farmers to apply on their own lands. One example is agroforestry, which has shown to have a great impact improving cropping conditions, environmental conservation and farmer´s income. They also provide free training and assistance in the compliance of good agricultural practices, food safety and the most relevant organic certification standards.
Since its foundation La Grama has been a company committed with it’s stakeholders development, generating around 1500 direct and indirect jobs, with the benefits these jobs give to those families. Teaching and sharing values with their workers and growers has been a priority. They have learned to use the financial system, the value of savings, access to credit and invest in their children’s education. Many of them have gotten access to a health care system for the first time in their lives.
