Our 34156 – Rwanda Fair Trade Organic COOPAC GrainPro is produced by members of COOPAC Ltd., which is an association of approximately 2,200 small coffee producers from communities in the Rubavu and the Rutsiro districts, located in the Western Province of Rwanda. COOPAC was founded in 2001 to renew quality coffee production in the region and create a sustainable form of income for its members. COOPAC has invested in the construction of 50 washing stations in the region and formed an agroforestry program where farmers receive shade trees to plant on their farms and cows as another source of income. COOPAC also has a comprehensive technical assistance program to help members incorporate organic practices on their farms. COOPAC’s consistent cup quality has been recognized in the Rwanda Cup of Excellence since 2008.
