Family Farms is one of the pioneers in cultivating blueberries in Peru. Over the past two years, Family Farms has planted 200 hectares of blueberry plants. They have ambitious plans to double their site over the coming years. Kekkilä-BVB has been by their side from the start, helping Family Farms adapt the local environment to the needs of the blueberry plants. With a strong focus on excellence and innovation, Family Farms has found a great match with the BVB Substrates brand from Kekkilä-BVB.

It all comes down to performance

Juan Pablo explains that for them, the most essential quality of a supplier would be the performance of the products they deliver. In addition, they also value timely and reliable deliveries, to ensure the continuity of their production.
