Organic Papaya

About the Farmer

For the past 27 years, Tid Bits Imports has partnered with organic farmers across Mexico to curate tropical fruits. They specialize in dried mango, pineapple, banana, papaya and jackfruit, working with hundreds of organic producers with land spanning over 700 hectares. Founder Tim Schumacher started the company wanting to do something he could be proud of. He wanted to create a great product that was healthy and didn’t harm the planet. To him, choosing organic was instinctually the right thing to do, believing “it becomes a lifestyle that is positive for the whole planet, your family, and your own person.” The company continues to grow but they have not lost sight of their commitment to benefit the communities they partners with in Mexico. They are involved in building local cultural centres, repairing community recreational facilities, and helping to repair a town’s hurricane-damaged drainage system. They are especially passionate about providing annual scholarships for youth to attend university, and about creating a fund to make medical care accessible for their workers. Everything, from using approved organic farming methods to supporting communities, is part of Tid Bits’ vision to maintain the planet for a better future.

Factoid

The papaya is thought to be indigenous to Mexico, Central America, and regions along the Andes Mountains. Aside from the useful vitamins it provides (B-1, B-2, B-3, C, K, A), the papaya is known for aiding in digestion. Not only does it contain high amounts of dietary fibre, but its papain and chyomopapain enzymes help break down proteins.
