Beneficio Santa Rosa SA
Beneficio Santa Rosa, which serves as the Market Access Partner for 140 independent smallholders in the region, has many years of experience in Fair Trade. They currently export coffee from Fair Trade cooperatives and have facilitated hundreds of thousands of dollars in Fair Trade premiums for smallholder coffee farmers across Honduras. It is now partnering with independent farmers from the Cruz Alta and El Trigo communities in the departments of Santa Rosa de Copan and Lempira to improve coffee quality and bring the benefits of Fair Trade to far more people.
“Fair trade is an opportunity for us, women. Fair Trade is also an opportunity to support coffee production. The certification process allows us to improve our lives, our families, and the community. We, farmers, must do our part: complying with the standards. This will allow us to sell coffee at better prices. ” ”
