The principles of sustainability are integral to the philosophy behind the business plan of our members. Most of our partners are Global GAP certifications, Rain Forest Allaince and even some BCS.

In Agroban we believe that the standards set by leading sustainability programs are vital to achieving a harmonious production environment and the community. We believe our role lidrazgo to produce bananas for sustainable development.

We have a project developing and implementing aims to define and implement norms and standards Agroban own sustainability. We intend to have the RAS and UN Sustainable Agriculture standards as a basis for Agroban standards.
We are convinced that Ecuador should have its own rules and standards of sustainability.

Ecuador is a country blessed by the conditions that have to produce sustainable banana country. Unlike other countries in the region. our climatic conditions stable and less rainfall and lower temperatures allows us to have a much smaller impact on the environment. Specifically in Ecuador we have less than 2/3 in relation to banana producers in the region in the quantity and cycles in relation to the application of fungicides by air for the control of Black Sigatoka. And because of the lack of strong winds is very rare that our partners apply nematicides on their plantations, which in other countries in the region is a common apply, 2, 3, 4 and more practical applications per year.

We invite you to explore the RAS and UN standards in the following links.
