Unión Majomut is a Fair Trade cooperative that brings together some 1,000 small indigenous coffee producers who come from the Tzeltal and Tzotzil ethnic groups, in the Altos de Chiapas region (Mexico). They fight to seek a comprehensive and inclusive development of the families of producers who are associated with the organization.
Thus, the association has been working since 1983 for the production and marketing of coffee in the area, but it also focuses on the development of projects that seek to improve the living and working conditions of the 32 communities that benefit from this producer group.
The organization’s coffee is grown in the Altos de Chiapas region, at more than 1,000 meters above sea level and on volcanic-based soils, and a fully traditional and natural farming system inherited from its ancestors is followed. Majomut’s partners are smallholders, with an average land area of two hectares. They generally dedicate one hectare to growing coffee, the marketing of which allows them to obtain the economic income necessary to acquire basic necessities (clothes, medicines, etc.) and the rest of the surface is used for the production of corn and beans. for family and community consumption.Visit website Unión Majomut
