On April 25, 2019, The National Association of Flower Producers and Exporters of Ecuador, Expoflores, held their 2019 FlorEcuador award show recognizing exceptional work, commitment and dedication in the flower industry. Jet Fresh Flower Distributors and Jet Fresh Flower Growers in Cotopaxi, Ecuador received the Human Transcendence award in the category of Corporate Social Responsibility for hosting our first Women’s Empowerment Class at the farm, and for hosting monthly coaching and motivational sessions at the farm.
Our farm managers, Juanita and Carlos Coloma attended the award show where Juanita accepted the award for her efforts organizing an emotionally empowering event for our team that is 86% female. Our Women’s Empowerment Class was our first motivational coaching event that discussed matters specifically affecting our female team members. Each month, we also host motivational team building exercises that help our team work better and more effectively together.
