Agrícola Chapi is an import/export company operating in Peru and exporting fresh agricultural products, such as asparagus, grapes and avocados, to the European, North American, Asian, Australian and Canadian markets. In 2019, Chapi committed to implementing the AWS Standard. The following year, despite the unforeseen challenges presented by COVID-19, the company continued its efforts towards the Standard to keep water stewardship as a main priority. This case study demonstrates how agricultural companies can create a pathway to water stewardship. It makes a new contribution to the understanding of water stewardship in Latin America and in a sector with water as the basic resource for its operations. Chapi’s case is interesting as it shows the momentum that a ‘water steward’ organisation can create, inspiring and guiding others to improve their water stewardship.
