As they say, it takes passion, hard work and unwavering determination to materialize dreams with astonishing results! So, we are humbled to share the story of the arduous adventure that brought one such dream into fruition.
The journey began when Edgar Oliva, father of Ronaldo Oliva who is the real protagonist of our story, began to cultivate Aloe Vera south of the border, in the beautiful country of Guatemala in Central America. Considering that the warmth of the tropical sun and the fertile soil are the two essential elements required to ensure well balanced vigorous crops, the stage was perfect for the vast plantation to thrive and become a marketing success distributed to the neighboring South American countries.
The year 1989 generated a very real challenge when the family emigrated North to Montreal, Canada. Ronaldo’s father purchased land in the small town of St-Isidore-de-Laprairie where he constructed a single greenhouse. At that time young thriteen-year-old Ronaldo duly followed in his father’s footsteps in working the fields, learning the insurmountable hard work and dedication that growing Aloe Vera demands. Needless to say, very few have mastered the art of growing Organic Aloe Vera plants year-round in Canada’s Nordic climate.
Fast forward two decades later, Ronaldo has become President of NorAloe, operating several greenhouses that produce over 50,000 very healthy Aloe Vera plants a year. These healthy succulents are distributed to garden centers, organic stores, individuals and supermarkets across Quebec and areas of Ontario. Such high demand originates from the powerful gel which has been scientifically proven to yield at least seventy-five, yes 75, nutrients that include Vitamins, Minerals, Polyphenols, Amino acids, and so much more that is beneficial when applied topically or ingested.
It is of utmost importance for Ronaldo to develop and expand the business but ensuring that it has zero impact on the environment. Now, the time has come for him to share his passion and knowledge about growing and caring for this beautiful plant and to fulfill his dream of providing fresh organic Aloe Vera plants year round. Major developments are in the works to supply other products of superior quality derived from fresh gel extracted from his Aloe Vera.
