As part of our commitment to providing you with only the highest-quality melons, we have designed best practices that we apply from seed to table.
At Sol, we have deep roots in the lands of Honduras and Guatemala and the well-being of their communities is at the heart of our initiatives:
With over 11,000 acres on 8 farms in Honduras and Guatemala, we are the largest grower of Fair Trade Certified ™ melons in Central America and the leading distributor in the U.S. and Canada. With every purchase of Fair Trade Certified™ melons, you directly contribute to programs that support the well-being of farm workers and their families.
We use specialized techniques to protect each melon throughout the entirety of the growth cycle. We begin our process by planting our melons inside nurseries to ensure each individual plant receives adequate nutrients and minerals. Once the plants develop, they are then transplanted in our farmlands to take root and fully mature before being harvested.
