Cooperlimao since 2016
The Urupês Lime Growers Cooperative was created on June 22, 2016 with more than 20 members. The foundation took place from the moment when the members, through commom interests, voluntarily joined together in order to streamline the product arrival up to the final costumer.
The first challenge of the cooperation was to organize the fruit commercialization. Structured on an ethical basis, the cooperative began the process of gaining new customers, employees and partners. In search of good commercialization in the market, it assumed all the risks and benefits of the activities in a cooperative.
Distinguishing itself from other organizations, with basic principles – among them, solidarity, equity, freedom and, above all, teamwork -, today the lime cooperative has more than 30 members. All of them certified in good practices and pulverization control, which ensures a product of extreme quality, origin and total traceability.
This effort, coupled with the good marketing process, ensures that the lime reaches the final consumer fresher.
