Chetna Organic: Chetna Organic Farmers Association (COFA) and a producers company – Chetna Organic Agriculture Producer Company (COAPCL), Chetna Organic is a belief of more than 8000 predominantly tribal farmers in the practices of sustainable agriculture and ethical trade. It is an effort to support small and marginal tribal farmers from the rain-fed regions of Andhra Pradesh (Telengana), Mahrashtra (Vidarbha) and Western Orissa (Kalahandi & Bolangir) to adapt agrarian systems which are more sustainable and more profitable, by minimizing their dependence on external factors.
