About Agrocosa, a Gomez Farm company

Agrocosa started back in the 1950’s as a farming operation producing various crops including corn, wheat, cotton, alfalfa, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes.

During the 1970’s the decision was made to test the international market, so fresh onions were produced and sold beyond Mexican borders. Its brands include: Rio Gold, Rio Pearl, Rio Ruby and Rio Sweet.

In the early 1990’s the pepper project began production. Fresh and processed pepper products were also exported worldwide. And the Lago brand was born.
