History

Bottega Fertil was born out of our own experience in the agricultural industry assisting clients in sustainability and growth, as well as our desire to help grow the GDP of our home country, Puerto Rico. SEquilibre's partners have been connected to the agricultural industry in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic for over 10 years, having helped design Walmart’s “Siembra el Desarrollo del País” in 2006 and W Hotel in Vieques’ “farm to table” plan. We have designed and implemented sustainability corporate culture programs for sugar refineries and the Junta Agroempresarial Dominicana and marketing/communications plans for macadamia producers in the Dominican Republic. We began to identify particular challenges and opportunities that were not being addressed, as well as services that were needed but not readily accessible to stakeholders in the agricultural supply chain. Most importantly, we saw an urgent need for direction and innovation in the new era of agrobusiness in the Caribbean that could help farmers, distributors, retailers and investors create “fertile” and profitable roadmaps. This has become Bottega Fertil’s value proposition.
