Background Details

PERU ORGANIC LA FLORIDA is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Florida, a cooperative established in 1966 in the province of Chanchamayo, Peru. La Florida has more than a thousand members who work together through the Occupational Learning Center for Sustainable Agriculture where farmers learn environmentally friendly farming and crop diversification techniques aimed at creating additional sources of income. La Florida also funds micro-financing for women who run household businesses, rural healthcare clinics, and infrastructure projects to maintain five roads, three potable water systems, and three schools.
