Along with many other growing countries, the 2019/2020 Pandemic has caused great suffering to countries, like El Salvador where harvesting the crop was a massive challenge along with long port delays. We are very fortunate to have this FT Organic lot from the Las Colinas COOP, ACOPALCO.
At Las Colinas, the farmer membership prides itself on paying the workers equal and fair wages, as many of the farmers were once workers from the same community and formed this COOP. This has provided hope and a pathway out of poverty, helping to elevate the community as a whole. We are proud to support their efforts.
