CAES Piura is an agricultural cooperative whose aim is to market organic products cultivated by our partners in various districts of the Sierra of Piura (wetlands of Peru). CAES Piura was founded by four producer organisations on February the 27th of 2009. In October of 2017, the organization became an agricultural cooperative by decision of its assembly.
The CAES head office is in Piura and our processing centre, located in Montero, is decentralized. We have several social bases in various rural districts of the Peruvian Sierra. The transition to co-operative status has allowed the organization to welcome its members as partners; we currently have 80 partners and 11 associations.
We have a deep respect for the land and the products we farm; this worth comes from our ancestors. That’s why our production is certified organic by our Internal Control System which is audited every year, giving us an internationally recognized certificate.
Thanks to the control processes and the skilful management of logistics and transport, we have been able tooffer our high-quality products in Peru and Europe for several years.
