Founded in 2005, Cooperativa Norandino brings together more than 7,000 cocoa, coffee and panela families from northern Peru. Its mission is to improve the living conditions of its member families by providing access to local and international markets. Norandino is driven by fundamental values of transparency, fairness, respect, accountability, democracy and quality of service. Today, all its producers are Fairtrade certified and organic. Our relationship with the cooperative began in 2013, thanks to a common interest in quality and sustainability; it has continued to strengthen ever since. Today, we source from two different regions of Peru: the dry Sierra de Piura and the green and humid Selva of San Martin. Our partnership includes exclusive cocoa from 3 communities producing the Gran Blanco variety.
