Coffee Cooperative Union Ltd

Under the motto “Grow organic coffee, uplift socio-economy of rural smallholders”, the Coffee Cooperative Union Ltd. Lalitpur was established in 2008 as an umbrella organization of Organic Coffee Cooperatives in the Lalitpur district. Coffee Cooperative Union Ltd. Lalitpur is currently working with 375 smallholders located in remote areas of high altitude, organic Arabica coffee production, processing and marketing within and outside of Nepal. Ranging from the foothills of the Himalayas at an altitude of 800m-1600m above sea level, Lalitpur district is endowed with a climatic boon for raising quality Arabica coffee. Coffee is grown under an organic management system without the use of external chemical inputs. The 58 hectors of land that CCUL’s coffee is grown on has been organically certified by NASAA since 2009. Currently the farmers of CCUL produce 21 tons of quality dry parchment a year. As coffee is a low volume high commodity cash crop, it has an immense scope as an important agricultural commodity for the rural areas of Lalitpur district which are marginalized from urban markets.
