PEOPLE THAT MATTER
At Manatee Fresh our guiding principle is that it's the people that matter. Workers at a farm in Tenjo, Colombia matter. Workers in Arcadia, California matter.
What does it mean to say that they matter? It means we only work with growers that pay fair livable wages, we work with farms that are certified sustainable, and we commit to the care of their workers, the environment and the local ecology surrounding their farm. Through certifications like Rainforest Alliance, USDA Organic, Florverde and Fair Trade, these farms commit to being inspected annually by third party auditors and myself. I personally visit every farm we partner with to ensure that we have similar values and goals for the industry and the people that support it.
To learn more about these certifying standards please see the links below. At Manatee Fresh, we are passionate about our people. From farm to your home table please feel welcome to see what makes us different, transparent, and your choice for products where it's the "People That Matter."
