Proforest is leading the technical work in a new sustainable landscape programme launched today by PepsiCo. Agrovita is a three-year programme focused on PepsiCo’s supply chain for plantain, cocoa and palm production in the Tabasco and Chiapas regions in southern Mexico. PepsiCo and Proforest are focusing on agricultural and social factors within the landscape and communities.
Last week the Proforest team visited the Lebrija River basin in Colombia, as part of a landscape project to tackle the problems of deforestation and water management in palm oil production.
