Overview

Consorcio Agro-artesanal Dulce Orgánico (CADO) is a cooperative of small-scale sugarcane growers in the Ecuadoran Andean region that distills organic alcohol from sugarcane for use in perfumes, soaps and other cosmetics. Through a combination of environment-friendly farming, gender-inclusive membership practices and positive social impact, CADO and its president Cecilia Arcos attracted the attention of international buyers like Dr. Bronner's and The Body Shop. With these valuable market connections, support from local NGOs and Root Capital financing, CADO has become the first ever exporter of fair trade and organic certified alcohol and has seen its sales volume nearly triple in the last two years.
