Producer Profiles

APROMALPI - Asociación Productores de Mango del Alto Piura

The Asociación de Productores de Mangos del Alto Piura (APROMALPI) consists of 168 small mango farmers spanning over 617 hectares in Peru’s northern region of Chulucanas. Each producer works with about two or three hectares of land, producing and exporting mainly fresh Kent variety mangos, as well as the pulp of Edward variety mangos. While over half of this area is dedicated to mango production for export, APROMALPI members also grow passion fruit and lemon in smaller quantities for domestic consumption. Members of APROMALPI became Fair Trade Certified™ to establish a more direct relationship with buyers and to secure a fair price for their product.
 

Programs

Organization Management

APROMALPI spends a portion of their Fair Trade premium on administrative costs.

Construction of Office Buildings

Currently, APROMALPI does not have its own offices so every year it designates a small portion of its premium to the construction of office buildings. Fair Trade funds are utilized for the company to grow and expand, ultimately providing members with the resources to manage and oversee their entire production.

Community Celebrations

On Mother's Day, APROMALPI gives a basket of staple foods to all members who are also mothers and to all members' wives.
