How It's Made


PURA COLLECTIVE has an inclusive business model that views producers and small-scale farmers as partners, not just suppliers. We are paying closer attention to each product and are able to implement a meticulous quality control process. We only partner with small-scale, local farmers who respect the land, and use centuries-old, sustainable and indigenous farming practices. By making our products in small batches, we are able to ensure that our ingredients are carefully chosen and meet our brand promise. 

Our Ecotierra Organic Sesame Oil is produced by the rural farming communities that live along the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. The farmers we work with are from a wide range of cultures in Oaxaca, including the Zapotecs, Chontales, Mixes, Ikoots, Mixtecs and Zoques. They work together in all process from farming sesame seeds to making sesame oil in their facilities.
