PERU Divisoria ORGANIC
ABOUT THE GROWER:
Peru Fair Trade Organic Divisoria is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Divisoria (CAC Divisoria), which is an association of approximately 286 small coffee producers from the regions of Huánuco, Ucayali, and San Martín, Peru. CAC Divisoria was founded in 2006 to support quality coffee production and ensure better income for its members. CAC Divisoria is currently supporting its members with financing, access to international markets, and technical assistance to increase the production of organic fertilizers. CAC Divisoria is also supporting members to diversify their income through the production and export of certified cacao and lumber. Farmers are also planting tropical native flowers on their farms to preserve the ecosystem and sell the native flowers for additional income.
