Vita Farms Receives MPS Certification

Vita Farms, a 50-acre nursery (with an additional 185 acre expansion underway) in Villa Canales, Guatemala, and a part of the ForemostCo family, recently received MPS A+ certification

MPS-ABC is a registration tool to keep track on consumption of crop protection agents and fertilizers as well as energy consumption and waste management. The MPS A+ certification is an official recognition of Vita Farms’ continued commitment toward running an ecologically sound operation.

“Social responsibility and sustainable production has always been a guiding principle at Vita Farms,” said Luis Pacheco, general manager of Vita Farms. “Obtaining MPS certification was a natural step forward toward lowering our burden on the environment, and assures that we are in compliance with market requirements.”

He continues, “We are delighted to have received the A+ rating, the highest attainable qualification, and will continue to implement best practices to reduce our footprint on the environment.”
