SOPPEXCCA - Sociedad de Pequeños Productores Exportadores y Comercializadores de Café
“One of the most important aspects for this organization is to be able to depend on buyers and consumers that believe in this way of doing business for our producing families, which allows us to further invest in each member’s production and thereby increase household income of every member’s family.” ”
Fatima Ismael Espinoza, GENERAL MANAGER
Productivity & Quality
One hundred twenty producer members of SOPPEXCCA benefitted from a premium-funded Renovation Program in 2015. The program, approved by the general assembly, helps producers with rust-resistant varieties as well as more productive varieties, so that members can more effectively increase their incomes.
During the last harvest cycle for SOPPEXCCA, the coffee market price was extremely low. In order to remain competitive with other buyers, SOPPEXCCA used the premium for an additional payment to producer members.
