Becoming an Exporter

RioSierra's decision to venture into coffee exportation opens up new avenues for income generation and supply chain control. By handling the export process directly, RioSierra gains control over a crucial link in the supply chain, reducing risks and ensuring seamless operations from parchment coffee entering our Dry Mill to the export. Moreover, this move fosters long-term relationships between producers and international buyers, ensuring consistent demand and supply crop after crop.


Benefits for Producers

For the associations within Red Ecolsierra, this transition signifies more than just a new business opportunity. It represents a shift towards sustainable relationships with international buyers. By partnering with RioSierra, producers gain direct access to valuable contacts and receive specialized support for international coffee negotiations. This support spans a range of key areas, including commercial labor, logistics, regulatory requirements, and financial risk management.
