At Viveros Guzmán, we are aware that many business activities have an impact on people, and ours is no exception. For the past 10 years, we have been working to reduce or mitigate this impact by using all means at our disposal.
As part of this reflection on pest and disease control, the idea arose - which has now become mandatory for us - to drastically reduce the use of phytosanitary products and replace them with natural solutions that have no environmental impact.
To achieve this, we have two leading companies in this field, AGROBIO and KOPPERT, which provide us with natural solutions based on insects, microorganisms, and bio-stimulants that are yielding surprising results while eliminating environmental impact.
For a company like ours that is opening up to new markets, excellence in processes and resulting products is a top priority, and compliance with international standards for quality becomes mandatory due to the particularity of our products.
In the context of agricultural production and farming, "sustainable" refers to the ability to maintain production in the long term without harming the environment or depleting natural resources. This involves the use of practices that reduce environmental impact, such as reducing pesticides and fertilizers, conserving soil and biodiversity, and being efficient in the use of water and energy. Sustainable agriculture also focuses on improving the quality of life for farmers and local communities, ensuring long-term sustainability.
Overall, we understand sustainability as a balance between economic, social, and environmental aspects.
The measures we are implementing include the use of water recovery basins, a drip irrigation system, modern facilities that optimize energy consumption, phytosanitary treatments with chemicals allowed by the MMA with minimal impact on the environment, biological control, a study of the minimum amount of fertilizers necessary, and an optimized resource management system. Viveros Guzmán has obtained environmental certifications such as MPS and ISO 9001 and 14001 and the prestigious GLOBAL G.A.P certification.
The GlobalGAP certification is a recognized international standard that assesses and improves quality, traceability, and environmental impact in agricultural production. This certification guarantees that our products meet the highest standards of food safety, environmental responsibility, and labor rights. By obtaining this certification, Viveros Guzmán confirms its commitment to sustainability and excellence in agricultural production.
