This is a story of a passion that began many years ago and evolved into Rio de Ojas, our labor of love that is a unique mixture of our experiences both at home and abroad. “Rio de Ojas” is a play on our last name, “Riojas” and translates “River of Leaves”.
A privilege of owning a business is that it allows us to choose to trade with companies and individuals that have integrity and a passion for their product. Some of our international partners are certified fair trade, and others support local schools and orphanages. In addition, we are committed to purchasing from “Ma and Pa” companies with great ingredients and philosophies, local artists, and selling student work to support local schools.
So, the story of Rio de Ojas is a love story. We welcome you to share the journey with us and become part of the tale.
