On October 1, 2009: Rosa Valle Vargas, the mayor of El Sauce Nicaragua, took a tour of our company. She was
impressed with the operations at Once Again Nut Butter and excited to think of the possibilities to work together to help some of the local producers in the El Sauce area. Once Again Nut Butter currently sources it sesame seeds from our co-ops in Nicaragua to make Tahini. In addition, we are currently in the process of Fair Trade Certification for these sesame seeds.
