Fair Trade Coffee Prices – Intro

Coffee cooperatives are organizations collectively owned by their members, mostly coffee producers and workers. Members share a common vested interest in the coop’s success for the benefit of present and future generations. Each coop has a board of directors and other governing members that perform administrative tasks, manage resources, and promote safety, health, and education for all members.

The Central Piurana de Cafetaleros or CEPICAFE coop, founded in 1995, is headquartered in Piura, Peru. CEPICAFE represents thousands of coffee, sugar and fruit producers from more than 90 separate organizations from regions in Northwestern Peru. CEPICAFE is basically an umbrella organization for other producing organizations. CEPICAFE enjoys a reputation as a strong cooperative with solid objectives for growth, social improvements and environmentally focused practices.
