BACKGROUND

SCAGREM was formed on January 21st, 2013 when a group of 30 producers from the province of Caranavi decided to get together in order to commercialize their coffee in a more efficient manner. At first, they considered joining one of the existing cooperatives that worked in the region, but the cost of joining per producer was too elevated. They decided to form SCAGREM and they have been working as a group on increasing productivity and renovating farms, as the area was affected by the coffee rust fungus. Their goal is also to be able to establish direct relationships with roasters in order to build more efficient commercial relations, seeking to obtain better prices for their quality coffee, thus improving the livelihood of their members.
