FIECH - Federación Indígena Ecológica de Chiapas
“Our members have found that through cooperative organization and participation in the Fair Trade system, they benefit more compared to conventional producers. Benefits range from improving productivity to upgraded facilities, allowing members to have a dignified and comfortable space to develop all activities inherent in coffee production, local organization, and management.” ”
Antonio Morales, CERTIFICATION REPRESENTATIVE
Technical Training and Supplies
FIECH provided support to members in the form of training, as well as internal and external inspections. Part of the premium investment of $351,027 went toward improving the quality of technical assistance. This fund also supported members in the purchase of technical equipment and supplies, which all helped to maintain organic coffee production and certification for all FIECH producers, and to improve the quality of the final product.
