About this company:

The company is made up of Cooperativa Agrícola, governed by the General Cooperative Law and internal bylaws and regulations. It was created in 2007 with 47 partners who are all small farmers in the Province of Choapa, in the Coquimbo Region. The initial capital was US $7,200. Currently the number of partners has increased to 90 with assets of close to US $350,000, primarily in physical investments. It arises from the partners’ conviction to find a solution to the commercialization problems that they face. Currently, the main item is the walnut with an area owned by the partners of 160 hectares in 2 varieties: Serr with the higher volume (80%) and Chandler (20%). With 8 years of experience in exporting walnuts, with and without a shell, in conventional formats (like commodities). Mission: Process and commercialize our associates’ products and provide our customers with optimal quality products. Vision: The Cooperativa Frutícola Agronuez Choapa is a leader in commercializing walnuts and is recognized by its customers due to the quality of its products and the seriousness of its commitment and due to the community in general because it is an organization committed to local development.
