The main strength of the Cooperative of Producers of Agro Fair is its philosophy based in the FairTrade. The Fair Trade is an ideology that was born in Europe 40 years ago. With it, it’s guaranteed a direct commercialization between producer and consumer, it avoids the exploitation of the agriculturists by giving their effort a price that can cover not only the production expenses but also helps them with their social development. Thanks tothe benefits produced by FairTrade, the CPAF has been able to improvethe life conditions of their members and the Latin American and African communities where the 12 organizations that composethe cooperative are located. The construction of health centers, aqueducts, day-care centers, schools, dining halis, supply centers, development of health and AIDS prevention campaigns, are part of the projects that would not be a reality if the CPAF did not think about commercializing their effort in a fair way.
