"The Pantheon deserves 100% of the credit. If it weren’t for the connections I made while networking with locals and the reliable support given from their leaders, my idea wouldn’t have had the resources to flourish to what it is today. The many partnerships we’ve formed and collaborations made to ensure prosperous economic growth, we owe to The Pantheon.”

Chief Science Officer at AgroRenew

“This is huge for the farm. Current standard procedure is that the farm incurs a cost or pays someone to dump the product, if it doesn’t make grade A fruit and vegetable standards, so this is going to provide an opportunity for us to either do that at a cost neutral way or even make a profit off of this. And then this also opens up the doors for us to harvest all of the fruits and vegetables that we would previously leave in the field.”

Brady Mouzin

Operations Manager, Mouzin Bros. Farm
