Mula Export's herbs

Mula Export’s social and environmental impacts
Mula Export uses the so-called outgrowers model, which provides their contracted small-scale farmers with training on export market production requirements, access to markets and, subsequently, income from their production. They have helped 400 families gaining 200.000 USD per year for their produce in the last 3 years. They have also trained farmers on good agricultural practices and soil conservation. Mula Export focuses more and more on organic avocado production, which is less detrimental to the environment.
