In 1991, seventy-six families united to form the cooperative, determined to increase the productivity of their small plots and sustain the quality of family-oriented agriculture in the region. COOPFAM has beenFair Trade certified by Fair-trade Labeling Organizations International (FLO) since 1998 and began exporting to the United States in 2003.
