[BSB AWARD 2020] Our Organic & Fair for Life (FFL) Aloe Vera from Mexico was honored by a BSB Innovation Award in the “Environment” category.
Actively involving a local producer group composed of 15 pickers since 2013 and certified FFL in 2017, our Mexican Aloe Vera supply chain is the perfect illustration of what a committed green and ethical business such as Greentech can achieve locally to promote, at its own level, the population’s economic development and well-being.
In 2018, through the FFL Development Fund, the pickers’ families monthly received a basket of nutritionally rich-food products and funding for their children’s semester tuition fees and school materials. Greentech also provided primary school of the village of Pastora with computer equipment, a selection of books and board games.
In 2019, Greentech organized a vision test campaign in Pastora. 800 eye tests, donation of more than 500 eye glasses and 300 sunglasses were realized.
In August 2020, to fight the covid-19 pandemic, the 500 families of Pastora received prevention kits including 2 masks, soaps, hydroalcoholic gel, … The health center was provided with 100 surgical masks, 100 disposable gowns, 2500 latex gloves, thermometers, oxygen cylinders, and other equipment to prevent covid-19 spread.
