Doselva’s CEO and co-founder is a passionate environmentalist who has spent over twenty years living in Central America. During his early days in the area, Jefferson would take excursions out to the last stretches of virgin forest that remained in Nicaragua, or in neighboring Honduras. The wastelands cleared by slashing and burning impressed him so much that it became part of his life vocation to find a way in which sustainable agricultural livelihoods could co-exist harmoniously with forested landscapes.
Along the following years, which lead to the foundation of Doselva in 2017, the current CEO of the company kept experimenting -both professionally and in his own farm- with sustainable land use management strategies.
In time, he found out that high value spice plants like vanilla and turmeric, cultivated beneath a multi-layered canopy, could guarantee both resilient rural economies and thriving, biodiverse ecosystems.
