With the Same Enthusiasm of our First Day
Founded by Miguel Molina, Agropecuaria Montelibano was the start of this history of great challenges where perseverance, hard work and dedication have overcome adversity and brought success, wealth and pride to some of the poorest rural areas of Honduras. With enthusiasm more than anything else , Agropeacuria started with a planting of 15 hectares of melons that were sold to an intermediary that packed and shipped the fruit to the US market; it was until 1983 that the company did its first direct shipment to the US under the Mike’s Melons brand. From there on, innovation has been the norm for a continued expansion and market product diversification.
Dedicated to the reliable and sustainable production of melons; Agropecuaria Montelibano is the oldest and most important company of the group.
