Vita Farms, ForemostCo Inc.’s production facility in Guatemala, achieves an A+ rating in the MPS-ABC registration system showing its complete dedication to sustainable production.
Vita Farms, a 50-acre nursery (with an additional 185 acre expansion underway) and part of the ForemostCo Family, started the process of obtaining the MPS-ABC certification in late 2019. The MPS A+ certification is an official recognition of Vita Farms’ continued commitment towards 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 towards 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.”
MPS-ABC is a registration tool to keep track on consumption of crop protection agents & fertilizers as well as energy consumption and waste management. Compliance with market requirements can be
demonstrated using the quarterly reporting tool as a management instrument.
