COOPROSANVITO - Cooperativa de Servicios Múltiples de los Productores de Café de San Vito
Located in southern Costa Rica, just north of the Panamanian border, Cooprosanvito producers cultivate their crops in altitudes ideal for production, with ample precipitation and rich volcanic soils. Environmental sustainability is a high priority and the cooperative treats this lush landscape with the utmost respect. Members and their families benefit from social and productive programs put into practice with the help of Fair Trade premiums. The community has recently invested in projects to provide farmers with affordable housing, access to financial credit, and industrial equipment to dry and package their product. Cooprosanvito’s years of experience, innovative expansion and community development ensure their environmentally sustainable, high quality product’s success in the future.
The most important achievement since Fair Trade Certification is that our members have recieved better training in coffee production, enabling improved management and production activity, and in this way becoming more self-efficient, confident and capable.
