Impact, special achievements & commitmentsThe Agrarian Cooperative of aromatic cocoa Colpa de Loros was founded on March 12, 2015, marking the beginning of the Bio Cocoa Program and the implementation of a successful management model, based on a strategic alliance with the production company of fine chocolates, Kaoka from France that has allowed producers to become quickly direct exporters of fine aroma and high quality cocoa for the world. The first exports began in 2015 with 25 MT of cocoa, the year 2016 increased to 176 MT and in 2017 exceeded 600 MT. Currently with 340 partners they aims to produce and export from 2020 an average of 1800 to 2000 MT / year of fine quality cocoa beans, produced under standards of organic production with a centralized post-harvest protocol, which implies a system of traceability and strict control in all processes. The Cooperative receives competitive prices for its exports in recognition of the quality of their product, with additional prizes for the organic label and fair trade, which allows to compensate its members with better prices that has had an impact direct on their income and improvement of their living conditions. The FT premium is being used by democratic and participatory decision of its partners in the improvement of post-harvest infrastructure, capacity building, social and productive development of the associated families and the execution of environmental projects, such as family and communal reforestation with native tree species, as well as the recovery and conservation of the Colpas de Loros, redoubts that houses endangered species such as parrots, macaws and other biodiversity.
