El Carmen is the first member of the Red Associations project, based in Pitalito, Huila. The Red Association in this region began with the creation of a drying hub, where producers from the local area could dry their harvest without the risk of rainfall rinsing away their profits.
The initiative allows farmers to achieve their common goal of achieving stable, sustainable prices for their collective coffee lots, whilst improving overall quality controls.
