Tolima lies deeply nestled in the Central Andes. While the climate is well suited for coffee production, Tolima has remained a less popular region due to the prevalence of armed conflict and drug trafficking.
With the project in mind of being benefited with fairer trade and thus improving the quality of life of many families of coffee farmers, 10 entrepreneurs of Planadas created Asoprocafees ending 2014.
With their Fairtrade Organic (FTO) certification, the cooperative gets higher prices for their farmer members and uses their Fairtrade Social Premium to expand and improve coffee processing infrastructure and social programs to benefit their community.
