Series overview:

The UPL Reimagining Sustainability podcast series focuses on the possibilities for climate-positive, sustainable agriculture. Through the insight and experience of UPL, farmers on the ground, and international stakeholders, we discuss how agriculture is the one industry with the ability to make a truly positive impact on sustainability for the environment, the global food chain and local communities.

Episode 2: Hero Farmers


Farmers are the heroes the world needs today. They’re working to protect the environment, feed a growing global population, and nurture their own families and communities. We hear from two farmers from South America about incorporating sustainable agricultural practices and the benefit to them, their communities and our planet.


Siany Villalobos, GRUPO VISA, Costa Rica, runs a family-owned business that has been growing pineapples, cassava, and rambutan for 33 years, exporting to 23 countries around the world. She is active in her community to ensure that people and the planet are cared for. 

Eduardo Holzapfel, Copefrut SA, Chile, and his team grows cherries, apples, kiwis, blueberries and plums to ensure high quality, high standards, and low environmental impact. Their fruit is exported to 85 countries around the world.
