The Comon Yaj Noptic Cooperative was founded in May 1995 by a group of small coffee producers in Chiapas, Mexico. Today, the organization is made up of 162 small growers, cultivating a total of almost 450 hectares of organic coffee spread throughout several Chiapas communities. The organization provides many services to its members including production enhancement workshops and technical assistance programs that allow producers to develop the skills needed to compete in today’s coffee market. Comon Yaj Noptic members are very engaged in conservations on the protection of their natural ecosystems and avoid the misuse of agrochemicals, take preventative measures against soil erosion, and implement sustainable management programs, especially those relating to water and energy.
