AgroMantaroâ€™s business model is built on ...
AgroMantaro is a Peruvian agro-processor of artichokes and jalapeÃ±os that sources from small-scale farmers throughout Peru and has located its processing plant in the central Peruvian Andes. By maintaining long-term relationships with customers like General Mills and McCain, AgroMantaro provides a steady income to hundreds of small-scale farmers as well as job security for more than 600 employees at its processing plant â€“ 90 percent of whom are women employed in their first formal job. AgroMantaroâ€™s growth is critical in these rural regions where most farmers earn little income and unemployment is at 30 percent. Since becoming a Root Capital client in 2010, AgroMantaro has been able to increase sales and production by 50 percent.
