We are on a mission to transform the food and agricultural sectors with both biodiversity conservation and the inclusion of women and diverse human perspectives by creating economically viable and socially inclusive food and beverage brands and value chains. We work with private companies, local and international organizations, and universities by providing professional consulting services and created our own food and beverage brand in Guatemala.
Our mission is to provide a diverse range of professional consulting services in Latin America and the United States to NGOs, Universities, and Private Sector companies who are interested in expanding their social impact by working at the intersection of agricultural production, environmental conservation, and social inclusion, particularly women's rights and women's inclusion in the food and agriculture. Our mission is to provide excellent services that all these organizations to transform their own work while simultaneously transforming lives of impoverished and traditionally excluded peoples in Latin America.
We envision a world in which women, indigenous people, and other traditionally excluded groups have an equal and important role in agriculture science, agricultural development, value chains, and farming communities. Our vision is to to be leaders in fostering this change as we support global organizations in creating economic empowerment in their work while creating well paying jobs and excellent working conditions for women in this field.
We believe we can change the world in the way we uphold our core values, in the way we work as a team, with our suppliers, and our partners and we seek to uphold the following core values:
Inclusive Innovation is essential for success.
We will confront and dismantle discrimination with our actions, work, and words.
Our work begins with respect for the history and present of the farmers and communities who have cared for the crops and land which make our work possible.
EarthEmpower was born in 2017 when we combined our passion and force of our desire to create social impact with our ambition to ensure economic sustainability. Rachael initiated the business in 2017 and met Magda later in the year when they joined their partnership in Mexico, and in 2019 they joined forces to make an international partnership!
Rachael and Magda created their partnership to incorporate their expertise in consulting with the gaps they always found in their projects - missing markets, insufficient affordable technology, and a lack of focus and opportunities for women and rural communities. They put these at the center of their company's mission and EarthEmpower was born.
EarthEmpower launched as a legal entity in 2017 in the USA, and 2018 in Mexico and Guatemala.
