This organization is made up of 36 small producers who work on 200 hectares in the district of San Mateo de Otao, Huarochiri province, in the region of Lima. Since 2013, Sierra and Selva Exportadora gives them advice on improving product quality and implementing Good Agricultural Practice (GAP).
With the support of this institution, the producers have also gained a Procompite to implement a processing plant, a stock of 5,000 boxes for export, and the acquisition of two huaros (layettes for transporting people and cargo on rivers), to take the fruit from the fields to the road while maintaining the fruit's quality and reducing production costs. Thus, preparing new shipments to Canada and Spain.
