Strategic Social Capital Cooperatives
The Colombian Coffee Growers Federation (FNC) counts with Coffee Growers Cooperatives to guarantee commercialization. Their social base is made up of all coffee producers who willingly want to associate.
Cooperatives have a key role in ensuring transparency in the domestic coffee market. They guarantee producers the purchase of their harvest all year round at the best possible price. In order to do so, Cooperatives have purchase points in nearly 550 places in Colombia´s coffee growing regions, of which 106 are located in the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia´s (PCC) main area.
