To start working on the valuation of available resources through the development of productive activities; as an alternative to the sustainable development of their families, their community.

Our History

On November 11, 2005, 19 producers were organized, constituting an associative organization «ASSOCIATION OF AGROFORESTAL PRODUCERS OF MADRE DE DIOS» AGRO-BOSQUE «, whose purpose was to undertake agricultural initiatives that allow generating sustainable productive opportunities in agroforestry systems, installing tropical fruits with forest species. In 2012, due to the growing demand for cocoa, we decided to venture into the cultivation of native (wild) cocoas and identified aromatic clones.

In order to strengthen a responsible social and business culture, COOPERATIVA AGRARIA DE SERVICIOS CACAO FINO AGROBOSQUE (COOPERATIVA AGROBOSQUE) was founded on December 5, 2013, with 30 associated families, who undertook the development of the cocoa cultivation chain , where we seek the joint and sustainable development of our community with a supportive business model, based on honesty and mutual collaboration.

We currently have 64 associated families (19 women and 45 men), we have installed 250 hectares of cocoa with Fair Trade certification (FLO) and in a process of reconversion of the crops towards organic practice.
