Few things can fill us with as much satisfaction as realizing that the fruits we planted in the heart of this magazine one day –even in its literal meaning, as it was the case of the article on Josep Maria Rodríguez’s La Pastisseria and his cherry (cirera) [so good..magazine #8] – suddenly bloom in the hands of somebody else who took it as a source of inspiration and a challenge to improve their own skills.
Good and productive. The sustainability of a crop which is also source of richness and life entirely depends on the balance of this binomial. GranjaLuker has spent half a century doing research and seeking the best, most resistant and most profitable cacaos, as well as updating the production methods, but one of their greatest achievements is even more important than this – the persuasion and training of the local farmers, who have realized that, economically speaking, cacao is as interesting as coffee, bananas or palm trees. For Juan Carlos Arroyave, director of the farming department of this institution, quality and productivity not only do not oppose each other, but need each other.
When back in the 60s of the last century McLuhan coined the term global village to describe the new situation the radio and especially television were beginning to cause, he could not imagine how this emerging globalization would reach present terms. Today there is little left to discover, or rather, to portray, record and disseminate. We know what happens at the other end of the world with the same immediacy and the same detail as if it were happening in our own city. This is a process as integral to humanity as inevitable. It is true that globalization may end up standardizing almost everything, but you cannot deny that exchange is always means knowledge and wealth.
