This program offers the necessary instruments for enabling coffee growers to have successful and competitive businesses.

Since 2002 the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia with assistance from the National Service of Professional Training (SENA), the Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Society of Agriculturists of Colombia have developed this program with the objective of "Strengthening human values and providing the capacity to manage businesses for the improved efficiency of the coffee companies." With this program, the Federation hopes that coffee growers and their families remain involved in the coffee trade through adequate business management.

This program has two educational levels:

  • At the advanced level, coffee growers delve further in depth into the administrative tools that permit them to improve their additional income and in this way achieve the best possible margins from their estates.
