About the cooperative
Federación de Empresas Certificadas del café de Honduras (FECAFEH) unites cooperatives across Honduras, two of which are Fairtrade certified. Being a Fairtrade organisation has brought transparency and democracy to the coffee communities in the region. They have been able to find a balance between their business and the natural resources around them.
The members of FECAFEH produce high quality coffee on small plots. The standards of certification have shaped excellent environmental and organic management at farm level. Different tree species seedlings are sold at cost-price to members so they can diversify their farms, increase quality with shade-grown techniques, and protect indigenous bird and plant species.
Members have used their Fairtrade premium to...
> Provide a supportive network to farmers to face issues such as climate change, which has seen diseases and pests increase over the years
> Provide university scholarships so that young people can become the coffee experts of the future
> Improve health centres and hospitals
