We are proud caretakers of this natural heritage and it defines our commitment to add value to the environment, our communities, partners, customers and to protect this priceless resource for future generations.

 

As part of our commitment to sustainability, DAABON’s operations are completely deforestation-free. We only farm on land that has been previously cleared, and we never clear or cultivate peatlands, the natural carbon sinks that absorb massive amounts of CO2.

 

We are a family company, founded on principles of solidarity and responsibility. In 1999 we started "Las Alianzas" (The Alliances), a partnership program for peace and economic prosperity in our farming communities.
