Gustavo Marun Cozzarelli
CEO & Co-founder
Founding partner at Harvest of Ecuador AB, visionary agricultural expert. Italian-Ecuadorian nationality, move to Sweden in 2017. Charismatic, inspirational & reliable might be the bigger assets in his personality. Was part of the beginning to develop the brand Chocolate SAN JOSE, which is part of his longtime family business & tradition.
We are a married couple, both with European family backgrounds who were born & raised in Ecuador, learn about their culture, and nature & fell in love with the mega-diverse country. Eventually decided to move back to Europe so we agreed it was a good time to promote the country giving back all it gave us and what we learned from it.
We want to share with the world the importance of this small country for the planet and all that it has to offer.
We trusted that a good starting point & audience would be Europe. We truly believe that the world can be a better place and we are confident that the changes must start by protecting the environment, starting with mega-diverse countries with several protected areas like The Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Throughout the years we realize the only way of preserving the environment & humanity is by becoming sustainable.
Along the way, we have found fellows & partners who want to join the mission and share the same values with us.
Amazon, Andes, Pacific Coast & Galapagos
In Ecuador you will find the most beautiful volcanoes in the Andes region, the exuberant and infinite wildlife in the amazon rainforest, kilometers of always sunny beaches, and the living reflection of the evolution in the Galapagos islands.
