Producer: Coopeassa

Coopeassa is a vehicle of small farmer empowerment in Costa Rica. The organization is fully committed to the social, economic, cultural and environmental development of its region.
What started as 20 families working together to empower themselves by opening a small supermarket in 1984 has transformed into one of Costa Rica's exemplary Cooperatives. 400 families are members of the Cooperative. The group owns a supermarket, hardware store, and fertilizer manufacturing plant to go with their cultivation and processing operations.
