Developing a Business as Mission
As we began to work in Belize, we met farmers and housewives who had amazing, sought after crops: spices, seeds, tropical oils, and more. Many times, they would smuggle their crops into neighboring Guatemala for minimal compensation, or the crops would rot in the field, because there was no market fir them.
It is that need that has led to the development of Maya Mountain Coffee and Spice Company, Inc. We are partnering with the farmers to help build a market so that they can realize a better future and increased opportunities for their families.
Because this is a sister business, one relies on the other for success and survival, 10% of all sales from Maya Mountain Coffee and Spice Company supports Sowing Seeds in Belize and all sales support our partner farmers.
