As a young college student Mario A. Calderon was unsure if he wanted to pursue a degree in mechanics engineering or in agricultural. Mario sought advice from his father who reminded him that no matter what, human beings will always need to eat. That bit of wisdom helped to solidify Mario's career path. As Production Manager of Avenco Spyces, specializing in dried spices, fruits and vegetables, Mario oversees every aspect of the product from germination to being processing ready. Mario is a firm believer in the importance of keeping abreast of advances and issues in the agricultural sector. He is getting more and more involved in the issue of climate change and it's impact on agriculture. Mario will continue to ask questions and seek answers to aspects relating to pollution, greenhouse effects, and water. Mario credits his success to his high energy, and passion for what he does. He believes in the importance of agriculture and the two things that sustain life- water and food. He has built his career by knowing the importance of the work that he does. Mario knows that by treating his co-workers with respect and knowing that it is by being dependable and going beyond what is expected, one is not only contributing to the company's success but helping to achieve economic success for Guatemala. It is the things that are done on an individual level that help to define the big picture, Mario expresses. He is fluent in Spanish and English.
