PAOLT, or the Productores Agrícolas Orgánicos La Trinidad, is an organic and Fair Trade Certified coffee producer organization located in Trinidad, Honduras, in the country’s northwest region. It was founded in 1999 by a small team dedicated to the unification of small coffee growers in order to improve their quality of life through sales to international markets. The organization represents farmers from nine municipalities in the region. PAOLT, today, assists its 225 small- to medium-sized producers not only by providing premium prices, but through access to finance or credit assistance, production and personal development workshops, and other social benefits otherwise difficult for farmers to attain –many with support from the Fair Trade Premium.
