Semillas Papalotla S.A. de C.V. was born as a family business in 1992, when a specialist from the Brazilian center-west joined forces with his Mexican brother-in-law to promote improved pastures in Mexico. The company received the name of Papalotla, which means “place of butterflies”, highlighting the metamorphosis that our work generates in rural areas.
Our main activity, the transfer of forage technology, began with the sale of seeds in the early nineties. This market, which seemed to be one more within the agricultural sector, was a unique opportunity to form a group of profitable and sustainable companies. It also brought tangible benefits to farmers living in the areas most affected by poverty and environmental degradation throughout the world – rural areas of the tropics.
