On March 25, Mr. Gustavo Rojo Plascencia gave his third work report leading the Confederation of Agricultural Associations of the State of Sinaloa (CAADES), where he mentioned the main results that have been had in the strategic axes of the organization.
He shared the importance of safety certifications, for which he highlighted the work done by Eleven Rivers Growers and the importance of the Veggies From Mexico community, which currently represents a third of Sinaloa’s exports.
He mentioned that the fresh produce industry has always faced several challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the rising cost of inputs. It was for this reason that he made a call to the partners to remain in unity to be able to face the challenges ahead.
“A cycle in the life of our organization is closing today, but at the same time a new stage is opening with the renewal of leadership, strategies and the spirit of change that animates them must also be renewed. I am certain that those who take over will mark the historic continuity of a project that is 90 years old. Encouraged by this conviction, I want to call them to unity, a unity not imposed from above but built from our base, from the growers,” he said.

Marte Vega Roman was sworn in as the new president of CAADES for the 2022-2025 administration. During his first speech as elected leader, Vega Roman said that he is a person of challenges and committed to the field, always seeking to integrate organizations and institutions that contribute to the agricultural and economic development of Sinaloa. He warned that to achieve this objective, the fastest and most effective route is unity, since CAADES is the umbrella organization that integrates and consolidates them, where none of the institutions is so large that it does not need the support of the others, nor so small that it does not contribute to their greatness.
“We must work so that our countryside continues to prosper in harmony, where each grower continues to contribute to Sinaloa remaining the breadbasket of Mexico and where we continue to have the best growers in the world. We know that agriculture is going through difficult and uncertain times, with a lot of market volatility, high production costs, insufficient public policies, among others,” he said.
Through a video, the leader of the National Agricultural Council, Juan Cortina Gallardo, expressed to all the members of CAADES and its member organizations, as well as to the new leader Marte Vega Roman, all the support and backing of the Council to reinforce the actions carried out in favor of the agricultural and fishing sector of Sinaloa, in addition to applauding the management of Gustavo Rojo despite such a complex reality.
