Late last week, Western Growers and the New Mexico Chile Association (NMCA) announced the formation of a strategic partnership following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that allows each party to coordinate on business matters and policy issues of mutual interest.
Under the terms of the agreement, all NMCA members that grow, distribute, or manufacture fresh chiles will become members of Western Growers and have access to select services. The agreement does not include New Mexico state advocacy or other state activities.
Additionally, the MOU gives New Mexico chile growers access to a host of WG member benefits, such as informational webinars, H-2A labor services, transportation services and expertise in trade and commodity services.
We would like to welcome the members of the New Mexico Chile Association to the Western Growers family!
