Our mission

To be an ethical business, socially, environmentally and fiscally.

We want to make your experience as straightforward and hassle-free as possible. We believe in social responsibility that everyone should be able to earn a fair wage and support their families. Therefore, our employees’ wages reflect our vision to enhance the lives of local people by paying them real-living wages, with paid insurance (caja and INS), aguinaldo, and vacation.
