Manduvira (Cooperativa Manduvira Ltd.) is a farmer-owned co-operative in southern Paraguay. The co-operative consists of 1500 members, including many small-scale sugar producers who were historically vulnerable to the impact of erratic and low prices. Manduvira provides higher and more consistent pricing to its members, along with many other benefits.
