The New Handshake Quarterly Vol. 5

Spotlighting El Salvador

Our trips to El Salvador over the years have introduced us to some great farmers, educated us on their day to day, and how together we can help each other grow. Read all about one such relationship in our newly released Handshake Quarterly.

We’re proud of these partnerships like the ones we've built in El Salvador and will continue to work to build and nourish them with as many farmers as possible.
