ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO GROW IT: Peru Jose Casas is a washed SHB EP grade microlot farmed and produced by Jose Casas, a smallholder farmer belonging to Grupo Buenos Aires of Olam Agro Peru. The farm is on the eastern slopes of the Andes Mountain Range, in the Chanchamayo area within the Junin region of Peru.
Olam Agro Peru was established in April 2006 in the capital of Lima. Connected to a network of other Olam companies, they operate as a Peru-based coffee exporting business, and have established two modern coffee processing mills. By building direct relationships with farmers across the coffee producing regions in Peru, they collect coffee close to the farm gate and manage the supply chain from origin to processing, sales and delivery.
Olam Peru’s sustainability programs reach more than 1,500 smallholders like Jose Casas under the Olam Livelihood Charter, significantly impacting family economic stability. The programs focus on improving farming practices to create a positive environmental and social impact in the communities and landscapes in some of the least developed areas of the country. They strive to develop solutions for farmers to improve yield, quality, and market access, and provide training on forest preservation and reforestation and climate-smart practices.
