COFFEE PRODUCTION IN BUGARULA
SOPACDI is comprised of more than 5,600 farmers. Each farmer has a very small area of farmland for coffee, less than 2 hectares on average, and they supply their coffee cherries to SOPACDI.
Joachim Munganga, who was a farmer himself, founded SOPACDI in 2003 by restoring a washing station that gave growers services and market access in these remote regions.
The cooperative was the first to achieve Fair Trade and organic certifications in Congo. The Bugarula micro–washing station serves 493 smallholder farmer members of the cooperative, including 143 women.
