MEXICO DARK ROAST
Mexico FEDESI SHG Fairtrade Organic
In 2016, six small coffee groups came together to form the Federación de Sociedades Cooperativas Cafetaleras de la Sierra Madre FC de RL (FEDESI). Their hope in coming together was to improve their access to new markets for production, financing and government support.
Together, the now 3,279 producers of FEDESI have produced 32,000 bags of certified Fairtrade Organic coffees. And together they have established a renovation program for their farms, built a nursery for young plans and offer trainings on leaf rust treatments.
The group is proud of what it has achieved and is pleased to be working closely with Exportadora de Café California — InterAmerican’s sister export company in Mexico.
