A warm thank you to the rural women who work so arduously with our passifloras
WHO WE ARE
We are a trade association whose members account for 90% of the fruit exports in Colombia.
The following exporting companies make up our organization: Caribbean Exotics, Colombian Paradise, Frutireyes, Jardín Exotics, Nativa Produce, Novacampo, OCATI, San Basilio, Prosagro Export and Montana Fruits. These companies are committed to the industry, they have assumed high risks, and invested their own funds to position Passifloras in the European market.
The cultivation of passifloras, especially purple passion fruit or gulupa, generates 4,284 direct jobs (family labor), in 837 Ha belonging to members of Avance Pasifloras.
Specialized production areas have an average of 12 direct workers per hectare/week. Harvest work is carried out mainly by women, which is why the involvement of rural women in the production of gulupa is approximately 50%.
