In June 2013, we hosted our very first Intercambio Colombia event, which brought together all of our Fair Trade and Conventional supply partners for three days of exchange on the current harvest, quality expectations and supply efficiencies.  We met in Peru last year, at Intercambio Perú 2012.

This first event took place at Finca Combia in Calarcà, Quindìo, with 157 participants representing Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc., Fair Trade USA, 32 small producer organizations, 16 exporters, 11 importers, 3 NGOs, and 3 financial institutions.

Our Colombian partners gave us a warm welcome into their communities and we couldn’t have wished for a better, more dedicated group of people to make this first Intercambio Colombia an unprecedented success.
