Central Fronteriza del Norte de Cafetaleros

Investing in a coffee cooperative focused on specialty coffee

Peru

Fair trade

Trade in products that have been certified and carry a fair trade label. An example of this is a farmer’s cooperative that collectively sells its cocoa to a fair trade organization.

Green

Promotes and/or supports the protection of the environment. An example of this is an organic farming cooperative.

Central Fronteriza del Norte de Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE) is a coffee producing and trading cooperative based in Jaén, in Peru's Cajamarca region. The cooperative represents more than 100 grassroots organizations with around 2,500 members.

CENFROCAFE focuses on high-quality coffee and is widely recognized as one of the top specialty coffee cooperatives in Peru. It manages to combine high volumes with high levels of social and environmental sustainability.

CENFROCAFE would like to have its own dry mill house facility near Jaén in order to operate more effectively and process higher volumes.

Central Fronteriza del Norte de Cafetaleros has been an Oikocredit partner since 2010.
