In 1987, a research named the “Green Cane Project” revolutionized sugarcane production methods, from soil preparation till development for final products, without using any synthetic chemicals while recycling all nutrients generated in the production process. Its original goal was to develop a self-sustainable sugarcane production system, aiming to realize all the ecological and conservationist potential of the crops. From sugarcane planting until its industrial processing, the highest available technology was integrated to the ancient human knowledge in organic stewardship of land. As a result, Sao Fancisco Mill was certified organic in October 1997. Always innovative and focused on sustainability, Native pioneered the Brazilian production of organic sugar in large scale, becoming the biggest organic agriculture project in the world.
The organic production of this sugar cane creates ideal living conditions for more than 330 different species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. The whole process in producing this organic raw cane sugar was completely natural. The sugar cane is cultivated with organic fertilizers and natural biological pest controls. The aim of this model of agricultural production are the harmonious co-existence of nature and economic activity and the preservation and encouragement of biodiversity by tapping into its richness to produce food for a growing world. This partnership with nature has transformed and made it a leader in organic Sugar Cane production.
This sugar is only “green” harvested rather than burning of fields, which not only maintains the quality of the sugar but also preserves the soil and the biodiversity of the farms. Each sugar crystal embodies the pure essence of the sugar cane nectar-the source of its fruity taste.
