Starting in 1999 we began the development of three distinct hardwood timber plantations, focusing on a variety of tree species indigenous to Central America. We worked toward building the vision of Clément-Marie Ponçon; that of offering high quality wood products to the marketplace with a fully sustainable supply chain. The Forest Stewardship Counsel (FSC) Certification process reinforced our commitment in AgroForestal and all of our Poncon Group operations
Welcome to Agroforestal
A journey of sustainability
Pioneering Agroforestry in Nicaragua
The Poncon Family Group was started in 1978 by French Agronomist Clément-Marie Ponçon. He came to Nicaragua in 1974 on assignment by the French government in the Nicaraguan Central Bank to provide advice on developing & managing agricultural programs for the country. As an entrepreneur, Clément started his first coffee plantation in 1978 and in the early 90s became the largest single coffee producer under Agroforestry systems in Nicaragua.
Today, the Family group is lead by the second generation and continues it´s leadership role in the development of inclusive and fully integrated agroforestry models.
