The power of example: innovation in the search for consistent quality
Surrounded and protected by magnificent rock cliffs reaching 1,245m in height, the crops at Sítio Armadillo are being prepared to make history.
Currently, the plantation has 15,680 highly productive quality trees and aims to be a leading model for good agricultural practices and new post-harvest technology in the region of Lageado, Minas Gerais.
The African beds, greenhouse patios and fermentation tanks, as well as the use of organic fertilizers are an absolute priority at Sítio Armadillo. The area has been certified through Certifica Minas, a state led sustainability certification program.
