ECOM Dallas School Supplies Drive 


In July, the Dallas office held a school supply drive to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Dallas. They made teams throughout the office and had them bring in supplies with their team color. In total, they received 8,600 school supplies and had a great time with this give-back project. We are very happy to share their success for such a nice cause!

EISA's annual Paella Lunch 


ECOM’s Brazilian operation EISA - Empresa Interagrícola S.A. has been present in cotton in western Bahia since the year 2000, when the region produced 42,000 hectares🌱

We were the first cotton merchant in Luiz Eduardo Magalhães, formerly known as Mimoso do Oeste.

Since 2005, EISA organizes a Paella Lunch with the cotton community of the region, at the beginning of the harvest, as a way of appreciation for the newly arrived cotton crop, and to celebrate with our friends and partners.


Antonio V Esteve, Chairman of the ECOM Cotton Board and Marco Antonio Aluisio, CEO ECOM Cotton in Brazil, were delighted to host the 18th paella in Fazenda Santa Isabel with the presence of our colleagues from Luiz Eduardo Magalhães and partners.


It was a memorable event with record cotton productivity in sight!
