ECOFROZ was founded in 1995 as a result of a long and planned dream of a group of Ecuadorian Farmers, that had been previously involved in farm production, financing and industrialization of agricultural products in Ecuador.
Our farmers had been land owners for many generations having more than 3,000 hectares of rich agricultural land available for planting and harvesting vegetables in the Andean area of Ecuador, that lie in fertile valleys in the highlands at around 3,000 meters above sea level.
Approximately 70% of the raw material grown for Ecofroz is cultivated in our own plantations, and the rest is contracted with experienced farmers that have been producing broccoli and cauliflower for more than 20 years.
Since its inception, one of the most important objectives was to consolidate an important labor force that will understand and fulfill the needs of our customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders.
Our employees are a group of experienced groups of individuals, with the majority of them working with Ecofroz since its initiation, and have developed an important leadership role in the industry with important developments, such as the following:
- First Ecuadorian Company to place sales to Japan
- First Ecuadorian company to have third party audits in place
- First Ecuadorian Company to implement Ready To Eat procedures in the factory
- First Ecuadoran Company to offer pesticide Free product in the market
