Unfortunately , internal conflicts in the country, delayed the development of the crop. In 1990, a
new government imprinted more stability to the agricultural sector, and thus sesame production
started to grow.
In 1991, a few Cooperatives in the Western part of the country and the Ometepe Island,
started experimenting with organic agricultural practices and as early as 1993, these
cooperatives have been growing organically certified sesame.
Our company only exports sesame that has been grown by farmers that have been certified for
at least ten years, so we are certain of the quality of the grain we export.
Sesame is a labor intensive crop, and we promote its production together with Organic Chia or
Peanuts , so that our farmers can use their land all year round. This practice also helps to
break pest life cycles in a natural and effective way. The fact that this is a labor intensive crop ,
is very beneficial to our growers, as they family nucleus works around this crop (except
children), which helps these families to get a better cash flow through this crop and its
combination with Chia or Peanuts.
