Working in partnerships
In 2008, we began a three-year program in partnership with TransFair USA to work with seven cooperatives in Brazil – representing nearly 3,400 family farmers – to increase their capacity to provide high-quality Fair Trade Certified™ coffee and to convert more than 2,000 to organic practices.
We anticipate this ambitious project will achieve:
- a 350% increase in Fair Trade Certified coffee exports from Brazil
- a 400% increase in double-certified Fair Trade Organic coffee exports from Brazil
- an additional $8 million in income to partner farms.
