How We
Farm Matters

We sell great looking fruits and vegetables to local and worldwide customers. But that's only a small part of our story. It's how we do it that makes a huge difference not only on our product's quality, but also on our farms, our staff and our environment. Bees have become the symbol for the way we care about each step of our production process. When we first heard that bees were dying in many parts of the world and that certain insecticides were suspect of causing this death, we immediately stopped using them. We went a step further and have since significantly reduced all pesticide applications in our fields as well as our partner grower's farms through intense research efforts. Since then we have had success in replacing some chemically synthesized pesticides with more benign organic control methods. We are proud to say that diminishing pesticide applications is still an important initiative at OCATI and will continue to be so for many years to come. The same caring and responsible philosophy applies to many social and environmental initiatives that we either support or carry out ourselves. You can learn more about them by clicking on the following links. It might not be obvious that two fruits are different when you see them. But dig a little deeper and it will be.
