Indigenous Mexicans Join Forces to Conquer Markets
go to original
May 31, 2014

The two groups, the Tlilmekaxochitl Agricultural Producers Society (SPAT) and the Southern La Hausteca Citrus Producers (PCHS) bring together small indigenous farmers in the La Hausteca region on the southern Gulf coast.

They will be supported by the National Management Service (Senages), a civil society that will train the two groups in market management, technical skills, infrastructure, and equipment.

During the Produce Marketing Association’s (PMA) Fresh Connections: Mexico event, SPAT sales manager Arely Reyes García spoke to about how the organization works and its main goals.

“The main focus is on raising the levels of production. We are located in La Hausteca, in the central state of San Luis Potosí, and we cover 14 municipalities,” she said.

“In total we have 300 member producers. They are all small famers, the majority of whom are indigenous and have strong traditions.”

The two indigenous groups, the Náhuatl and the Tenek, are deeply rooted in organic farming and so traditionally do not use chemicals.
