Oaxaca, Mexico – Since 2014, Masienda supplies only the highest quality ingredients to the United States and beyond, incorporating a business model that provides fair market prices for smallholder farmers in Mexico.

In order to realize its mission, Masienda uses Ultra Hermetic™ technology. California-based Jorge Gaviria, founder and CEO, has been doing business with GrainPro® for two years. Masienda’s partner farmers grow non-GMO heirloom maize, beans and chilies, which they store in GrainPro Cocoons™ and SuperGrainbag® Premium RZ.

As a chemical-free grain storage and pest control solution provider, GrainPro develops products that cover the entire post-harvest chain. In fact, Masienda plans to integrate more GrainPro products in their processes, as they continue to expand.

According to Gaviria, Masienda regards GrainPro as the industry leader in safe, effective post- harvest handling. “Landrace maize is particularly susceptible to grain weevils and moths,” he said. “Therefore, we wanted to avoid the product losses during post-harvest handling, without the use of chemical treatments or pesticides. GrainPro technology effectively allows us to safely store our grain without compromising Masienda’s unparalleled product integrity,” says Gaviria.”

The SuperGrainbag is a premium liner that is designed to enclose commodities in a super gastight and watertight environment to prevent the exchange of gases and moisture. Meanwhile, the Cocoon is designed to safely store five to three hundred metric tonnes of bagged commodities. Both products are able to protect stored commodities against infestation and fungal contaminants for more than a year, and preserve their freshness.

The popularity of their Masienda’s heirloom maize created continues to create quite a demand in the United States and the European Union. In fact, Masienda will soon introduce their own line of value-added products, including, but not limited to, tortillas and masa harina. Having GrainPro on their side ensures their growth will be aligned with their mission.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  20. Throughout the grand design of things you actually get a B+ with regard to effort. Exactly where you actually confused us was on your specifics. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more accurate here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you precisely what did give good results. Your text is definitely very engaging and that is possibly the reason why I am making an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can easily notice the jumps in reasoning you make, I am not necessarily sure of exactly how you appear to connect your details which in turn make your conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your position but wish in the foreseeable future you connect your facts better.

  21. Thanx for a very interesting web site. Where else may I get that kind of information written in such a perfect method?

  22. Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

  23. Very good post. I certainly love this website. Thanks!

  24. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

  25. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  26. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  27. I do like the way you have presented this specific issue and it does supply us some fodder for thought. Nonetheless, from what precisely I have seen, I basically wish as the comments pile on that men and women remain on point and in no way start upon a soap box associated with some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this fantastic point and whilst I can not necessarily go along with it in totality, I respect the standpoint.

  28. I really like what you guys tend to be up too. This kind of clever work and coverage! Keep up the awesome works guys I’ve you guys to our blogroll.

  29. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

  30. Admiring the persistence you put into your website and in depth information you provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  32. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

  33. Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

  34. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later. Cheers

    Virtually all of the things you point out is supprisingly accurate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. Nevertheless there is actually one position I am not too comfy with and while I try to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the point, let me observe what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Very well done.

  38. I read this post fully on the topic of the difference
    of most recent and previous technologies, it’s amazing article.
