Grower lauded for social responsibility

We are proud to see that our grower partners have received praise for their social responsibility initiative.  This week, the popular Perishable Pundit e-zine published an extensive piece on Campos Borquez, our grower partners in Mexico.

Son Sergio (photo below) was interviewed by publisher Jim Prevor in the context of their Amsterdam Produce Show, where Sergio presented.

As the article quotes, below, social responsibility is not a “trend” for this group, but a  long-term lifestyle commitment.  We congratulate our grape team for having been selected to address this important topic in this international forum.

What Campos Borquez is doing impacts all four sectors and challenges the industry to go beyond “showcase projects” at the farm, to really consider what would enhance the life of the workers and their families, much of that life taking place not on farm property but back in their home villages.” – Jim Prevorsergio-borquez
