What is Acopio?
Acopio empowers coffee cooperatives by strengthening management processes and enabling them to share better supply chain data with roasters
Digitize cooperative transactional data to empower better analysis and management decisions
Acopio connects each farmer's lot of coffee (and associated characteristics) to export orders. This enables the organization to better track volume and quality of current inventories in addition to providing a critical link between quality and the price received by the farmer.
Coffee buyers have questions and Acopio empowers producers to answer them
Many questions asked by coffee roasters are currently unanswerable due to lack of accessible supply chain data.
How much of the price paid is received by the farmer? Is quality appropriately rewarded with premium prices? What is the value chain within my supply chain? Do the fees charged reflect roles? What is the cost of sustainable production?
Acopio enables answers to these questions and more.
Sharing information strengthens supply chain relationships
Acopio empowers coffee producer organizations with access to the data that matters most to their business and to their supply chain stakeholders. Enabling sharing of information will help align goals and create shared value among coffee producers and industry partners. This strengthened mutual understanding can lead to additional collaboration and deeper relationships.
