AGREA is an innovative, inclusive, for purpose, agri-business that is founded on sustainable agriculture, fair-trade, and replicable model of an agri-based economy.
We are in the most essential business – feeding people. Rich or poor, young or old: everyone needs to eat. Food is essen- tial to life on Earth. Hence, dignifying all the stakeholders in agricultural systems, more importantly the farmers is the core of our work. Many farmers create vibrant livelihoods out of food production, while others struggle to get ahead. AGREA is a small player but a quality player. We founded our business on Ecology of Dignity as agriculture is the only industry that takes care of all living things on earth: plants, animals and humans.
We are focused on making the Philippine archipelago to be agriculturally sustainable built on the One Island Economy model guided by three major goals: Zero Hunger, Zero Waste and Zero Insufficiency. We believe that Filipino Farmers are world class. They are the point of change in the food system. We also continue nourishing every Filipino family. Investing in human capi- tal through nutrition is considered a sustainable economic investment. Nutritious and safe food allows for healthy and productive lives. It’s as important as the air we breathe and the water we drink.
Healthy human capital is the backbone of our economy. Taking good care of our only planet is integrated in our business. Environmental impact is a key consideration in all our business operations. Our approach is transformational, we make sure every transaction made with AGREA from producing to bringing food to the consumers is contributing to impactful changes in every point of the supply chain.
Operating since November 2014 in a patch of land in the Island Province of Marinduque, AGREA is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in June 26, 2015. In the years that followed, AGREA went on to become successfully accredited by various Philippine government agencies.
In 2016, the Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Training (DA-ATI) accredited AGREA Farm Estate in Marinduque as a Learning Site for Agriculture for its diversified integrated farming system. In 2017, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) also certified AGREA Estate Farm as a farm school and an assessment center for agri- cultural technical vocation skills development. The following year, the Department of Tourism (DOT) recognized AGREA as an agri-tourism farm site.
