The beekeepers of the Maya Vinic cooperative are all part of the Tsotsil, Tzeltal and Cho ‘l and are descendants of the ancient Maya. They live in the mountainous region surrounding San Cristóobal de las Casas. In this region of Mexico, coffee is the main crop, but for Oxfam Fair Trade (who helps Rosette source this product) it’s also a source of quality, fair-trade honey.

This region has been disadvantaged ever since Spanish colonization. For centuries now it has largely been seen as a reservoir of cheap labour for large coffee and sugar cane plantations across Mexico.

Maya Vinic offers its members not only economic and social solutions, but also the possibility to preserve and reinforce their own identity, language, culture and traditions. The members of this cooperative can rely on its rock-solid internal organization, unity and mutual support.

In short, we’d say Maya Vinic is a fine example of a 100% indigenous, fair-trade cooperative.
