In this episode. Farmfolio CEO Dax Cooke fills us in on the conditions of the Tahiti lime supply chain in Colombia, which has passed a major milestone this week with the opening of the Valle Verde packhouse. Valle Verde fills Colombia’s need for an export-focused packhouse facility optimized for lime.
This is no small part thanks to the mammoth, high-tech packing line and sorting machinery imported from Mexico by the Valle Verde project. The machine features a built-in photo unit that takes 3 photos of each fruit passing through, helping to weed out defects and categorize precisely.
The opening of the packhouse is a major step forward for Colombian limes, and will allow us to lead the charge to introduce the high-quality limes of Colombia in US and European markets. Don’t miss this episode for an update on Valle Verde’s capacity, our projections, and our vision going forward. See you soon!
