better income today,
In 2016 Galana Coffee's farmers exported the first 1,700 pounds of Galana Coffee. Over the years the famers have been able to increase their production to where it is today. Exporting through direct trade with Galana Coffee Company enables the farmers to receive approximately 30% more for their beans than they would with a Fair Trade Exporter. Because Galana Coffee Company is a Direct Trade Exporter the "middle man" is essentially eliminated. The increase in production over the years is in large part due to the advantages of direct trade, which helps provide more training and better equipment.
All profits from the sales go to expansion and improvement of coffee farming in Cañada Galana, Honduras and to benefit the village of Cañada Galana and surrounding communities.
