Santafe Global Inc. understands that the world is changing and that we are stewards – not for only the present but for future generations to come. In this vein, we are committed to farming practices that are not only profitable but that are also sustainable.
We have teamed up with the best minds in their respective industries to provide core principles that will guide us on our journey together.
Why Sustainability = Profitability
At first glance, these two principles may seem at odds with one another or at best mutually independent, but while we stress that Santafe Global is a steadfast partner to our franchisees, our biggest ally is the environment and Mother Nature herself. We’d like to think of ourselves as a forward-thinking company, and it is evident to us that sustainable farming practices are the future.
