Our impact strategy reflects our industry and our business model.

Since 2021, Frutura has built a portfolio of fruit growers, packers, and marketers in the United States and Latin America.

As a global and vertically integrated platform with a decentralized operating model, we are uniquely positioned to develop locally-appropriate sustainability strategies and drive positive impact across the produce industry at large.

Frutura’s Impact Collaboration Framework

Our Collaboration Framework establishes shared sustainability ambitions and objectives while supporting tailored strategies that respond to local environmental and social realities. Grounded in our agricultural legacy and regional materiality, we’ve aligned on seven collaboration areas to kickstart our collective action.
