In 2017, we designed a range of delicious sauces which are currently available at numerous health food stores in San Cristobal de las Casas and will soon be available in other Mexican cities. Our goal, however, is to produce and distribute a nationwide range of exceptional sauces and garnishes under Fair Trade conditions and the exclusive use of organic ingredients.
This project was created with the aim of financing LumHa’, but also with the desire to offer alternatives to the local population. Alternatives primarily in view of the dramatic situation of the forests. We hope to be able to protect more and more forest areas from the chainsaw by creating reliable working conditions, regulated income and better education.
Our project already offers two young women and two young men from the region a reliable job in which they can learn and develop. But that’s just the beginning. We want to grow and process most of the ingredients for our products on our property and in the immediate area. In the long term, we want to create permanent jobs on our property alone for up to 20 women and men – and many more through cooperations that we seek with landowners from the area.
