OUR LOGO

OCATI® offers fruits and vegetables of the highest quality to national and international clients. Since 1988 a small part of what we do, how we do it is what makes the difference. Bees have become a symbol of good agricultural practices that we use at every step of the production process. When we first learned that bees are dying in various parts of the world due to the use of toxic insecticides, we immediately discontinued their use. We even went one step further and through intense research efforts, we reduced the use of insecticides in our fields and those of our associates. Since then, we have successfully replaced some pesticides (chemically synthesized) with natural biological control techniques. At OCATI® we are committed to reducing the use of pesticides and we will continue our efforts in the field of environmental sustainability. Likewise, we will continue to support and invest in social initiatives.
