Client Population

Huatusco has customers on both sides of the coffee business. Huatusco purchases coffee from producer cooperatives. These cooperatives are comprised of a total of 1,988 members, of which 496 are women. Once the coffee is processed at the Huatusco plant, they export the coffee to their principal foreign markets in the United States and Europe. In recent years, Huatusco has become the single biggest supplier of fair-trade and shade-grown coffee to Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), a leading socially responsible coffee roaster based in Waterbury, Vermont.
