Each bag of KITU keeps the natural character of its ingredients; our small-scale farmers delicately grow our vegetables in a sustainable way.

After the process of peeling and cutting into thin slices, we handmade the chips in a unique way thanks to “OUR SECRET”, to be finally packed in a natural atmosphere with pure Andean mountain air.

This long journey allows us to offer you a new snack concept completely different from what you have known until now.

Direct Trade and Sustainable Trade

It is an initiative that promotes an ethical and responsible connection between farmers and final consumers, without intermediaries. This is the way how we create a “shared value” between the two parts.

¿What does shared value mean?

Our raw material comes from small-scale farmers with whom we do a direct trade. In this way, the remuneration that the intermediaries would receive is destined, on the one hand, to increase the price that is paid for the raw material to the producers, and on the other to invest in I+D in technical development programs of the field.

We contribute to improve their production, to obtain better product quality, and especially to take care of the environment. In addition, we also encourage gender mainstreaming, integrating women into the entire processing chain, even more than 30% of our producers are women.

Environment

We promote good agricultural practices beetwen our small-scale farmers and thus avoid negative impacts on the environment, these are based on:

  • Soils conservation
  • Sowing native vegetables
  • Natural Fertilizers
  • Natural pesticides
