Nekutli is a Mexican company formed in 2002 , to promote organic agriculture by incorporating farmers and indigenous people in marginalized areas of Mexico, who came together to work under the rules of fair trade and organic farming, beneath a scheme of Social Solidarity Economy which achieves a more equitable income distribution resulting in the reduction of social inequalities to generate education, social welfare and equity in the lower income groups in this country. Nekutli partner organizations represent more than 800 farmers in the state of Jalisco, and 214 indigenous ÑhaÑhu of which 144 of them are women, from the state of Hidalgo. Nekutli represents an alliance and support network in which each producer can prosper within independent, democratic and non-discriminatory organizations.
The Nekutli program offers harvesting assistance, social improvements, educational advancement, business counsel, fair prices and higher incomes. Revenues are invested in housing, schools,and health services for farmers and their families. The results are happier lives – through job creation, reduced
migration for family and community stability, a scholarship program, and maintenance of Nhannhus traditions and culture.
As a result of a crisis caused by overproduction of agave, the industry began to seek alternatives to the use of this raw material into products other than Tequila, and as a result, we developed patented biotechnologies to obtain important ingredients: the natural sweetener, organic agave syrup, low in glycemic index (GI) and a soluble fiber, organic agave Fructans: Metlin and Metlos. In the year 2000 research and development of new products were started, once this stage was finished, the design and construction of production plants. The first commercial efforts were made in October of 2001.
In 2005 Nekutli initiates biotech research and development to obtain two soluble organic fibers with high purity prebiotic effect using as raw material the Blue Agave, -Agave Tequilana- or Agave Azul. The manufacturing plant was completed in 2008; the same year Nekutli began commercial production. Trademarks of soluble organic fibers of high purity are Metlos® and Metlin®.
