Vita Farms, a 50-acre nursery (with an additional 185-acre expansion underway) and part of the ForemostCo Family, started the process of obtaining the MPS-ABC certification in late 2019. The MPS A+ certification is an official recognition of Vita Farms’ continued commitment towards running an ecologically sound operation.
“Social responsibility and sustainable production has always been a guiding principle at Vita Farms,” said Luis Pacheco, general manager of Vita Farms. “Obtaining MPS certification was a natural step forward towards lowering our burden on the environment and assures that we are in compliance with market requirements. We are delighted to have received the A+ rating, the highest attainable qualification, and will continue to implement best practices to reduce our footprint on the environment.”
MPS-ABC is a registration tool to keep track on consumption of crop protection agents and fertilizers as well as energy consumption and waste management. Compliance with market requirements can be demonstrated using the quarterly reporting tool as a management instrument.
