How Fair Trade Has Made a Difference
In order to increase the production and efficiency of members, engineers and coffee production specialists were hired by CENFROCAFE to provide ongoing training,technical assistance and capacity building to members. In 2002, one member would produce 900lbs of coffee per hectare. Since the creation of this program in 2007, members have increased their production by more than twofold. In 2012, members are reporting the production of 2,100lbs of coffee per hectare. This has been a direct result of the training that members have received from this program.
