Mayan Pride Project
Guatemala suffers from high unemployment rates, emigration and poverty in rural areas. There is little work for the growers. However, there are still opportunities as Guatemala has a perfect climate to grow high quality vegetables. Natures´ Pride and its supplier Ghortex, who has been trading and growing sugar snaps and mange tout for years, have joined forces to increase the production of local growers.
