It is with heavy hearts we have to communicate some very tragic news to the ProGreenUS family.

Last Thursday evening, Flavio’s son Christian passed away after being in a car accident.
Christian was 26, married with an 8 month old daughter, working for Contel – responsible for paying day workers on the farm, also capturing photos and videos of the pepper plants and farm operations frequently, which have been posted on the website several times. Christian is seen here second from the left, in a happier moment last New Year’s Eve with family and friends, and below (on the right) with his father, Flavio, and his younger brothers.
