BAGUA GRANDE - Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Bagua Grande

The Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Bagua Grande is located in the Amazonas region of northeastern Peru. Established in 1979 in response to low prices paid by local coyotes, BAGUA GRANDE has grown to be the largest coffee cooperative in its region. The decision to unite under this umbrella organization came with the realization that they needed to reach major negotiating power against intermediaries. Only then would they be able to work towards improving the quality of life for its members. Currently, the organization counts with 450 small coffee farmer members.
