Mexico Organic FIECH (Federacion Indigena Ecologica de Chipas). This large cooperative exports and mills on behalf of 15 small cooperatives from municipals across the state of Chipas, which is located in the South of Mexico, with 2800 members in 21 municipalities.
Despite its rugged Mountainous terrain, here lies the perfect conditions to grow coffee. The farming community is extremely poor and relies on coffee as their main source of income. The Federacion Indigena Ecologica de Chiapas (FIECH) was created in 1993 by three small cooperatives in the region. Since FIECH gained certification in 1996, families have benefited from steadier and higher incomes, better practices and training, leading to increased output and quality. FIECH has renovated over 3000 hectares by planting some two millions new Arabica trees. The cooperative uses profits to invest in children’s education, dormitories and medical facilities and invests in farmer education in organic agriculture.
