In 1999, 11 organizations in the northern central region of Peru came together to form the Central Fronteriza Del Norte De Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE). They started with 220 producers, cultivating an estimated 9,000 quintals of coffee on about 760 hectares of land spread throughout the Cajamarca region. The group now counts at least 2,262 coffee producing families working on approximately 1,200 hectares, 95 percent of which are organic with the remaining on the way to becoming certified organic. CENFROCAFE became Fair Trade Certified TM in 2007 which facilitated more direct access to markets and comprehensive information on world market coffee prices. They have strengthened their relationship with international partners while creating a more transparent and just supply chain. Coffee from this cooperative regularly places in the top of Peruvian gourmet coffee competitions.
