Agriculture has been considered as a major cause of deforestation and environment degradation, particularly due to overuse of agrochemical. Ensuring that agriculture can also be done in a sustainable manner has been my long-time passion. I take pride in our certified products from farms that strive to operate with responsibility and high environmental standards.
