Organic Alliance has entered into a distribution agreement with Aires de Campo, the first organic packaged food company in Mexico.

The contract gives Organic Alliance, an emerging provider of organic and Fair Trade certified foods, exclusive rights to distribute all Aires De Campo organic products in the US, beginning 1 January 2010.

"As a partner, they share our stringent quality and food-safety requirements and like Organic Alliance aim to grow the Organic and Fair Trade market by providing new gourmet certified foods that will give consumers an increasing number of sustainable food options in the marketplace," said Christopher White, director of global supply development for Organic Alliance.

White added that the agreement was a "win-win" for both Organic Alliance and Aires de Campo.

"They have been trying to develop their products in the US market and we have been expanding our current program to include new sustainable foods from South America. Most importantly, we share the same values, believing that high-quality organic foods are healthier for the environment, growing communities and consumers."

Currently Aires de Campo supplies many Mexican grocery chains as well as big box stores including Sam's Club and Wal-Mart.

All Aires de Campo product labels will display the Organic Alliance logo alongside the primary Aires de Campo brand.
