COOPRONARANJO R.L is a company that began 46 years ago, in 1968, with a group of 91 small coffee growers from Naranjo, who at the time were producing approximately 10,000 Spanish bushels of coffee per harvest season.
This group of coffee growers decided to combine forces and create a cooperative under the name of Cooperativa de Productores de Café y Servicios Múltiples de Naranjo R.L. (Naranjo Coffee Producers and Multiple Services Cooperative). Since then, it has been serving and contributing to the development of the canton of Naranjo, which is known as being purely a coffee-growing community.
Since its creation, COOPRONARANJO R.L. has been the center of economic growth in the canton and its importance is so great that currently this cooperative consists of 2,338 members, the majority (around 95%) of which consists of small-scale coffee producers. By the same token, it is important to mention that 40% of the cooperative’s members are women who have found an opportunity to better themselves and thereby cover their living expenses.
COOPRONARANJO R.L manages very well in the agricultural marketing sector. It is known for producing and selling coffee, as this is the company’s main revenue-generating activity.
