Andina Coffee works with Cafenorte (Cooperativa de Cafetaleros del Valle del Cauca), that joined 2,200 associated families in 12 municipalities of the Norte del Valle (Colombia). Cafenorte has been in the market for 55 years as a leader on the production and marketing of coffee in the northern region of the department.

Cafenorte provides support to the coffee farmers in different ways, such as:

Coffee is a seasonal products and of course there are times that the coffee farmers do not have an income as their coffee is not ready to sell. For this reason our provider has created the Diversification of crops program which allow the coffee farmers to grow other kind of food in their crops while coffee is ready. 

But how does it work? In the hectares that they have in their farms, our provider help them also to grow food such as bananas, avocados, etc so they can have another source of income.
