Description

Cooperativa Agropecuária do Alto Paranaíba (Coopadap) took its first steps on September 28, 1994, organizing farmers around the city of São Gotardo, Minas Gerais. The prior cooperative, Cooperativa Agrícola de Cotia, had gone bankrupt, but more active members saw the value of cooperativism and bought out the facilities to give it a second life. At the time this region was known as the nation’s capital for carrots, but this coop quickly branched out to support coffee and other grains grown by it’s members.
From the first they focused on technology, research and infrastructure. They pride themselves on values that always prioritize quality and individualized service, delivered with empathy, professionalism and paying attention to the needs of every member.
In-keeping, over the years, the coop has become a place where the needs of members have found a home in the form of programs that provide social support, ecological protection and insight into quality. One aspect of this is ‘Fazenda Estação Experimental’, the experimental station, a living laboratory where the coop can probe the limits of what’s possible, and bring this knowledge back to members.
