The Café Selva Norte project is based on a joint venture between six strong cooperatives of Peru northern region. Although these cooperatives are professional organisations, exporting hundreds of tonnes of coffee each year and recognized in the markets, they still face major problems that restrain their own sustainable development as well as the one of their communities.
The Café Selva Norte Peru will allow the creation of a strong partnership between these cooperatives and Canopy SLF to insure the sustainable development of the coffee value-chain reinforcing and empowering the main stakeholders; the cooperatives and their producers.
