Shani Nir states “Our full line of Ayco Melons including Large Watermelons, MiniMe Watermelons, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Galia and other new varieties are all under the Rainforest Alliance seal!” The Rainforest Alliance seal means that Ayco Melons are grown using methods that promote a better future for people and nature.

On their farms, Ayco uses many practices to lessen their impact and waste. One example is the Organic Waste Use Plan. As part of Ayco’s recycling program, their Organic Waste Use Plan consists of converting food waste into organic fertilizer for later use in the nurseries!

“We are so proud of our team and excited to have this seal on our products as a promise to continue to improve our melon farming practices and promote sustainability” said Shani Nir
