Producer Profiles

ACODIHUE - Asoc. de Cooperación Desarrollo Huehuetenango

Asociación de Cooperación al Desarrollo Integral de Huehuetenango (ACODIHUE) is a primarily coffee producing organization located in the Cuchumatanes mountains of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. The region’s unique climate and chalky soils provide excellent grounds to harvest a quality product. In addition to coffee, ACODIHUE also produces honey, potatoes and “rosa de jamaica,” all of which are commercialized under the “La Meseta” brand label. ACODIHUE, through their sales into local and international markets, hopes to continue to provide services and technical assistance to producers that will keep product quality at competitive levels in addition to developing social and economic programs benefiting farmers, their families and the community.
 

Quotable

Without access to credit many producers would not be able to sell at Fair Trade prices. Small farmers often are forced to sell the future rights to their harvests to local middlemen at extremely low prices in exchange for some cash up front.
