JAM, LLC is committed to increasing crop production and quality of life for those in the developing world. Here is an overview of our larger programs.
Our focus has always been people. What better way to reach people, than to feed them? As emerging nations continue in their development, there is an increasing demand and opportunity for agriculture and agriculture related projects. JAM, LLC has a long history of helping the agriculture industry in third world and developing nations. We work to create self-sufficiency, and to nurture souls. But to complete our mission, we must first nurture the body. We accomplish this with fervent passion.
Working for years to develop and refine our Success Cycle™ program for agriculture, JAM, LLC has created a definable process with which we improve agriculture, social standing and education in the developing world.
The Success Cycle™ consists of four major parts:
Through our agriculture division we have a team of talented agronomists, agriculture managers and specialists to implement our program. For more details on how we carry out our Success Cycle™ program, please visit the Agro-JAM website.
Traditional Philanthropy has failed the world’s poor. According to the World Bank and the IMF, over USD $80 Billion is spent on foreign “welfare” every year and yet global poverty is only worsening. We work in an entrepreneurial concept. We work with governments and small farmers to give them a hand up, not a hand out. We ensure they have a stake in the project, so they have a vested interest in the success. We believe building agriculture businesses works better than donations. We do more than just ‘teach a man to fish’, We build self-sustaining local farms and processing centers run by locals which helps to feed and clothe hundreds of times more people than traditional donations.
With our Success Cycle™ agriculture program, we lift thousands—not tens or hundreds—out of poverty. We believe that with investment of our expertise and experience in the local community, we help the local people and local resources create a lasting, replicable model for lifting entire populations out of poverty. While committed to the individual, the broader scope is to nurture sufficient individuals simultaneously so that areas and populations begin to lift the heavy burden of poverty.
We believe we can reach 3 Billion people who are our passion, as well as our customers. The developing world represents a USD $7 Trillion market. JAM, LLC continually seeks the most effective way to tap this market, helping others and saving lives in the process. We extend our hand providing our agriculture expertise, experience and our agriculture education/management through our Success Cycle™ program to drive growth, which in turn self-perpetuates the program to achieve where others have failed. With every cycle refresh, more opportunities are available to the people, and opportunities for our company to grow as well. Truly making a win-win situation.
In this age of corporations seeking “green fuels” and renewable energy sources, many have turned to bio-fuels made from corn, sugarcane or biomass. Except for biomass, these bio-fuels put a demand on the food supply. By legislation, many corn and sugar producing nations must be used in the production of ethanol. Brazil, the world’s largest sugar producer, uses large percentages of their production in the making of biofuels. When you remove food from distribution, you decrease the amount available for human consumption and increase the price of product available for livestock and humans.
The great question is “How do we create these bio-fuels without affecting the food supply?” JAM, LLC has found the answer. You can make alternative fuels from an agricultural product that it not good for consumption. The answer is found in a simple tuber, cassava. The have identified a variety of cassava that is too high in starch for use in human consumption and grows much larger and faster than food grade cassava. Even more, the dried cassava chips when fermented in distillers for ethanol produce more ethanol, bio-gas and bio-diesel per metric ton than either sugarcane or corn.
The Agro-JAM division of JAM, LLC has now become the world’s third largest producer of these types of chips, and our Petro-Max division uses them to produce ethanol and butanol. If you wish to participate in our projects in alternative fuels, please visit our Investor Relations section. If you are a farmer wanting to join our list of producers, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also now have a new developing use of agriculture waste products to produce ethanol or butanol. This is an exciting discovery by our Petro-Max division.
