About this company:

Montaña Verde was created in 2000 as part of an initiative of CARE International, who supported the organization and training of coffee producers to help them reach acceptable levels of production of high quality coffee for export. The main objective was to create an business partnership of farmers that would help increase their family income through a strategy that would get them closer to the final buyer. Since 2001, the Canadian NGO and a roasting company have been working together in the promotion of the Café San Luis Honduras brand. This brand has been commercialized in Canada and the northern of the United States for 15 years through various export channels. Today, San Luis coffee, is part of the range of brands distributed by Van Houtte coffee (Keurig Canada), and has a prominent presence in distribution stores across North America. At the beginning, exports were made through an exporting company in San Pedro Sula, which paid for the production, services and export license. During this phase the quality of the product was validated and members were trained. In late 2005 USDA made an important donation of equipment and infrastructure for the production of coffee. Since 2005 Montaña Verde has been buying the coffee from the producers, drying it and preparing for export it with its own export license. In 2012 the members decided to become a mixed co-op to respond to the new market challenges. On December 3, 2012 the organization became a legal entity with registration # 2723, recorded in volume V, book IV in the national registry. With multiple obstacles to overcome, in 2015 Montaña Verde Ltd. obtained Fairtrade certification.
