• Aloe Vera plantation from Curaloe

    About us


The History

On July 25th, 1997, Curaçao Ecocity Projects NV was incorporated, and the company started developing the plantation in December 1999. The plantation covers an area of 10 acres, 5 of which are used to cultivate the more than 100,000 specimens that are growing at our plantation at this moment. It takes 2 years for an Aloe Vera plant to mature to the point at which it can be harvested. The average time span for harvesting is approximately 10 years, during which we will collect 6 to 8 leaves from the bottom of the plant per harvest.

In 2002 we received financial support for the construction of the production plant through Senter, a Dutch governmental institution that subsidizes development projects that involve Dutch companies. In 2003, the construction was completed, and we ran our first trial production sessions. Since 2004 we have been producing commercially and our annual production level has increased steadily every year.
