Culiacán, Sinaloa – During the last days of August our director Georgius Gotsis Fontes participated along with host Idelfonso Avilez in the “Ganar Podcast” to discuss various topics about our agricultural community Veggies from Mexico.
In this interesting podcast, Georgius discusses various personal and professional topics; including advice on leadership, healthy habits, management strategies, and productivity, as well as some of the experiences that have marked his personal life.
Georgius shares the trajectory of the family business “Agricola Gotsis” which dates back more than 100 years in the agricultural sector of Sinaloa; in which they have had the opportunity to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, potatoes, jalapeño peppers, and have been pioneers in the cultivation of the Kabocha squash which is exported to the Japanese market.
Georgius shares his experience as director of Veggies from Mexico, which he mentions is an agricultural organization that seeks to ensure that Sinaloa farmers who participate in the community comply with all the food safety and social responsibility standards required by international markets; mainly North America, which is the main destination of the members’ export production. He mentions that one of the characteristics that distinguish the organization is based on the internal audits, which are responsible for weekly review of the packing facilities, field, and shelter; ensuring that compliance is maintained throughout the operating season of the company, creating a culture of compliance and continuous improvement in agriculture.
