Peru

Rikolto builds on a long-standing history working in Peru’s agricultural sector. In 2021, we reached 2,508 producers.

In 2012, we pioneered one of the first youth involvement initiatives in Peru’s cocoa sector. We launched our coffee programme in 2014. Currently, we are running our Cocoa & coffee programme, and our Good Food for Cities programme in the cities of Lima and Huancayo.

Projects

Building sustainable and resilient 'Food Hubs' in Lima and Quito

Everyone has the right to healthy, sustainable and culturally appropriate food. Yet many people still can't call this their reality. Rikolto and a consortium of organisations, Ecosad, the FUNSAD Foundation and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) are working to change this through a participatory and collaborative research project. Their objective is to explore the potential of 'food hubs' or 'neighbourhoods' in creating resilient urban food systems in Quito and Lima.
