In 1996 local farmers from the regions of Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Mame, Chuj and Zoque formed a cooperative with the view to improve quality and yield, and get affordable credit. They were worried about chemical inputs, soil erosion, fish and bird deaths and the emigration of their young people seeking jobs. The Cooperative now includes 13 organisations from the Frailesca, Costa, Sierra Madre, Fronteriza and Norte regions in Mexico.
Fiech farmers have built a modern warehouse with high-tech equipment for quality control. The Coop provides technical assistance, repairs and calibrates machinery, builds school dormitories, develops women’s programs and has created a community lending bank. Members are diversifying with a roasting facility, wholesale and retail sales, ecotourism and other commercial crops.
Farmers have tripled their average income by converting to organic production. They have used their resources to improve their lives. In 1996 the government awarded the Cooperative the National Ecological Prize for environmental stewardship. Nowadays you can find coffee from the Indigenous Ecological Federation of Chiapas, or Fiech, served in fine restaurants throughout Mexico.
