Interesting Fact: Finca Triunfo Verde (FTV) has worked extensively with Grounds for Health to implement a community-focused effort to test women for cervical cancer. Grounds for Health has trained co-op staff to run and maintain the clinic and continue the effort.
Last Visit: Todd Caspersen, director of purchasing and production, and Carly Kadlec, green coffee buyer, visited Finca Triunfo Verde in December 2015 to work collaboratively with FTV staff on an upcoming project. We designed the project with a significant emphasis on expanding the coverage of technical assistance to farmers and increasing the number of field visits by agronomists to members' farms.
