Going Deeper

A group of 50 small-scale coffee farmers from Peru’s Chanchamayo region came together in 1966 to form the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Florida (CAC La Florida) in order to bypass local intermediaries. Their efforts have brought much needed education, infrastructure, credit and environmental restoration to the remote valleys of Yurinaki, Ubiriki, Perene and in the central upper Peruvian jungle.

Since 1966, the organization has grown to include 1,200 members and they have enjoyed dramatic benefits since becoming Fair Trade Certified in 1993. These benefits emphasize the socio-economic development of its members and the protection of the environment. Their education programs provide training for members, workshops on coffee production and management sessions for the community youth. This includes access to resources including libraries, school gardens and uniforms. CAC La Florida believes their children are the future of the cooperative and must therefore provide support in educating strong leaders capable of management roles. CAC La Florida's Family Development Committee focuses on strengthening women's participation in production activities. Empowering women to fully voice their opinions within the cooperative is another step towards achieving economic and social sustainability within family units. Fair Trade standards require that farming families have access to doctors, medicine and proper nutrition. CAC La Florida provides financial assistance to members and their families in case of serious accidents or ailments. The cooperative also assists with basic medical expenses.
