This new lot of Peru is from the APROCANORSI Cooperative in the San Ignacio province. The organization was founded in September 2004 with 110 original members who came together with the shared goal of improving quality of life of the producers and marketing high quality coffee at a fair price. In 2005 they became certified as Organic and Fair Trade for the benefit of the environment and the objective to sell coffee on an international scale.
From its inception the group was a non-profit organization, in 2014 they decided to transform into a cooperative for the social and economic benefit of the members. The cooperative currently has 158 members, all located in the surrounding districts of San Igancio. In addition to being Fair Trade and Organic certified, they also have an Utz certification, all of which have helped leverage the sale of their coffee into the international markets.
Peru is the world's leading producer of organic coffee. Fair Trade USA and USDA Organic Certified.
