Tunneltek is part of CAOR International group, a 100% Mexican Business Group born as a group diversification initiative. It was started by the vision of a producer from Zamora over 20 years ago. He saw the opportunity after the arrival of an important berry seller to our country. Driscoll's, an American company with over 100 years of being one of the most important berry sellers started agriculture by contract. Driscoll’s started working with a few producers from Zamora and asked them to invest in the technification of the field, the high-tunnels. Thus, in 1998 we saw an opportunity to sell the steel structure of the high-tunnels for we had important partnerships with steel suppliers as well as good logistics. After a few years, we managed to have the exclusive partnership with GINEGAR, one of the most recognized manufacturers of plastic films for high-tunnelss. Our relationship with GINEGAR over the past 15 years has shown considerable production results which allowed us to start with the protection of crops in the valley of Zamora, specifically for strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry. Moreover, we currently cover over 20,000 hectares with high-tunnelss in Mexico and an increasing wave of countries in Latin America, which positions us on the top for our expertise in the high-tunnels agricultural industry in Mexico.
