From fighting bacteria to lowering blood pressure, organic roselle has great health benefits, especially if its harvest comes from the Mexican countryside.
And it is precisely one of the national companies that is most concerned about caring for the climate and the soil where its products are grown, is Aires de Campo.
In addition to working directly with farmers -respecting their ancestral processes and promoting the circular economy- throughout Mexico, they show a special attachment to the hot land of Michoacán. Being the first company that supports local producers, it rescues Mexican gastronomy in its natural form, making sure to offer ingredients as the land gives them to us: without chemicals that alter them, extolling the origin of the products and raising the value that offers its consumers.
The legacy of the Michoacán countryside
For years, this area of Michoacán has presented an acute socioeconomic backwardness due to its climate and soil restrictions, which caused a situation of abandonment. Over time, it has known how to stand out for its production of organic jamaica, producing more than 15 tons per year.
In fact, in a statistic released by the Ministry of Rural and Agrifood Development in 2020, Michoacán is positioned as the second largest producer in Mexico, only well below the state of Guerrero.
Artisanal care for the flower of jamaica
From La Huacana, Michoacán, the hibiscus flower is grown organically, under sustainable agricultural methods, contributing to the development of community cooperatives. And to the conservation of natural resources and wildlife of the Mexican dry tropics.
Under an artisan process, the whole flower is selected, harvested by hand and dried in the sun, thus preserving the intensity of its color, aroma and flavor. Aires de campo knows how to do it very well, that is why within its catalog we can find organic jamaica and even salt seasoning, jamaica and habanero, ideal to accompany fruits, vegetables and snacks.
