BUSINESS: Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Florida
CITY: Peru
Country: Peru
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 and thus improve the socioeconomic conditions of its members. Their efforts have brought much needed education, infrastructure, credit and environmental restoration to this remote corner of the Peruvian jungle.

The farmers mainly produces coffee, which they are able to export as a Cooperative. However, they also carry out other activities such as produce pineapple and passion fruit, raise livestock, fish, and promote ecotourism in the area. Their agroforestry systems promote the healthy, sustainable use of the Yurinaki and Ubirki river basins in Junín, Peru.
