JUMARP unites farmers in the El Palto area of the Yamón district in the province of Utcubamba in the Amazon region of northern Peru.Coffee cultivation in the Amazon Andes of northern Peru, where JUMARP operates, began in the 1950s. For a long time, cultivation methods relied heavily on the use of agrochemicals. After many decades, this group decided to change the old methods and begin sustainable coffee production in harmony with the jungle. JUMARP also realized that together they would be stronger in marketing their coffee. In this way, and through certification, they aim to guarantee their members* a regular income and improve the community's standard of living. The 188 members* all produce organic and fair trade coffee. One of the priorities of the association in the last two years has been to increase productivity. To achieve this, JUMARP invests half of the premiums received in crop renewal and conversion to organic farming methods. Another large portion of the premium goes into the fund for educational programs and the construction of schools. The JUMARP-affiliated producers all cultivate small plots. In total, the 188 producers grow coffee on 549 hectares in the "Selva Alta" in northern Peru. This is a special ecosystem in Peru and Mexico with dense and humid forests.
