Organic products such as cacao and bananas have raked in big profits for farmers in Costa Rica’s poorest region, Talamanca.

Near the town of Bribrí, an indigenous community in the southeast corner of Costa Rica, the Talamanca Small Producers Association is buzzing with activity.

From this remote location near the border with Panama, organic cacao is dried and packed in burlap sacks, and organic fruits are processed into puree before they are exported worldwide.
