A group of women in the village of San Andres, Mexico started about 15 years ago with the production of a sweet agave syrup. They formed a cooperative to make the syrup of the juice of the green agave. For this purpose they need a huge amount of energy to cook the juice and concentrate the syrup. To heat up their big cooking pots they used big gas stoves.
After some no satisfying attempts to process the syrup with small solar stoves (SK-14) in 1999, new efforts in 2005 with Schefflerreflectors were successful. In 2008 they started the production of solar agave syrup with six 10m² Schefflerreflectors in a new kitchen building. - text taken from paper
