The History behind Cooperfamiliar: Milk and Dairy

Since 1996, Cooperfamiliar cooperative has been involved in bringing together small-scale producers from western Santa Catarina, one of the major dairy production areas in Brazil. Family farms helmed by women are crucial for the income of local communities, but they're under pressure from the advancement of huge industries in the sector and are finding it difficult to keep their families congregated around the work in the field.

United in the cooperative, these families consolidate their forces in an innovative project geared towards professionalizing the manufacture of milk and dairy products, bolstering sustainable agriculture and implementing environmental conservation measures. Moeda's recent contribution will aid in completing the local structure and acquiring machinery that will make it possible to produce pasteurized milk, a variety of cheeses, butter and other dairy products. United, they will bring more value and thus more return to the cooperative, rendering a positive impact on the lives of families and the community.
