All the work is done harmoniously with nature and with respect to the environment.
PRODUCCIONES AGRICOLAS MATILDA E.I.R.L. not only focuses on the well being of individuals but also their entire families.
At the same time PRODUCCIONES AGRICOLAS MATILDA E.I.R.L. supports the non-profit organization INDIAN FOR EVER with some of the profits from the avocado trees. www.indian-for-ever.com.
PRODUCCIONES AGRICOLAS MATILDA E.I.R.L. is a pioneer in this andes region in concern to the production and export of "Hass" avocados. Currently 20 hectares are planted and there is a remaining 12 hectares that can be planted on. The rest of MATILDA is completely wild nature and comprises of cliffs, where parrots nest. Also two rivers, Rio Colorado and Rio Blanco, converge in the MATILDA area. The land is a paradise with plenty of wild animals, plants, pumas, bats, falcons, songbirds and much more. It is a natural and protected piece of land.
MATILDA comprises of 52 hectares of land. It is situated at the entrance of the national park "Machu Picchu", embedded in the Cordeillera de Vilcanota on the way from Cuzco to Abancay. MATILDA lies 2'200m above sea and the climate is optimal for the plantation of avocados as it is hot and humid.
All work, the ordering of the fields, the plantation, care for the plants and harvest are done with the greatest respect for the nature and the environment, which in this area is still healthy and upheld. We are convinced that we have to work alongside the nature so that the fields provide fruits for a long time, and the people prosper in life.
