Achieving Fairtrade-certified organic cacao and copoazu agroforestry production
Madre de Dios • Peru Started in January 2023 Active Natural Forest Management
COOPSSUR's members grow cacao and copoazu in terraced rainforests within the Madre de Dios region of Peru. The cooperative's products are already organically certified. From the engagment with WWF, COOPSSUR seeks to renew their organic certification by reducing the use of agrochemicals while also obtaining Fairtrade certification, something that would open up new markets and generate higher prices for its members.
