BACKGROUND:In 1965, a group of 100 small-scale coffee farmers from the Chanchamayo region came together to establish the La Florida Cooperative. Today, the co-op has grown to over two thousand farmers who work together to improve the quality of coffee La Florida produces. The revenue from their Fair Trade sales has brought education, infrastructure, credit, and environmental consciousness to this rural area. The co-op has established The Occupational Learning Center for Sustainable Agriculture. This center offers environmentally-friendly farming techniques training along with healthcare services to this rural area as well as many other benefits.
