In addition to the market access support, SCFCU is providing financial support to the FERO cooperative as well as technical support to improve farming and processing practices.

Our coffee partners at Thread Coffee are working to create relationships directly with farmers, ensuring that producers receive a just price for their beans, and that their coffee is grown in a way that’s good for both the environment and the culture.
They aim to accomplish this by:
- Paying higher prices than the fair trade minimum
- Establishing long-term, direct relationships with farmers
- Supporting practices that protect the environment and the culture
- Making a commitment to participatory democracy and collective structure, both here in the workplace and with the farmers
