Kitu : healthy vegetable snacks

Kitu is the name given by the Incas to the Center of the World, where the most exotic nature grows. This word comes from the ancient Quichua language, which gave its origin to the Quito city, capital of Ecuador.

This place is located at latitude 0-0-0, it is on the equatorial line. It is a place with unique weather conditions, which encourages the growth of our exotic plants throughout all the year.

On the other hand, our project seeks to share its value chain with all those who compose it. In the same way, we want to offer you an experience of flavors, colors and values that you will be able to enjoy when you taste every bag of Kitu.

Kitu products offer you a healthy alternative for snacking between meals, a very special concept of snacks thinking about small local farmers in the Andean countries, about the communities where we make them, and also about a better future for the well-being of our planet.

Kitu and the sustainability of the planet

With Kitu vegetable snacks, we promote good farming practices among small farmers. This allows us to avoid a negative impact on the environment. These are based on :
- Soil conservation
- The crops of native vegetables
- Natural fertilizers
- Natural pesticides


Our raw material comes from small farmers with whom we work directly. In this way, the remuneration expected from intermediaries is intended ; on the one hand, to increase the price paid to the producers for the raw material, and on the other hand, to invest in R & D in technical development programs in the crops.

We contribute to improve their production, to get a better quality of product and especially to protect the environment. In addition, we also promote the gender equality by the integration of the women at all stages of the production chain. Indeed more than 30% of our producers are women.

EAT HEALTHY AND MOVE!
We develop snacks that share the values with the NAOS strategy, actively participating in the search for a healthier diet, in accordance with policies defined by international health organizations such as the World Health Organization or the European Union.
