ASPROUNIÓN is a not-for-profit organisation made up of farmers who own small high quality coffee acreage. ASPROUNIÓN was legally constituted by 112 members in November 20, 2001. Forming ASPROUNIÓN as a company was the result of analysis and deliberation by coffee growers who were searching for the best way to perform in the coffee value chain. This process commenced in La Vereda de Juan Solarte Obando de La Unión Nariño and two years later ended in the municipal seat of La Unión during the meeting where the organisation was legally created. Currently, ASPROUNIÓN has 200 member families.
