La Terra e il Cielo
La Terra e il Cielo is an organic agriculture co-operative founded in 1980 in the Marche Region, Italy. It can be considered as one of the pioneer companies to invest in Italian organic production. The co-operative incorporates 100 associate farms that contribute raw materials; many of them are located in the Marche region and play a very important role in terms of environmental protection and sound rural development. La Terra e il Cielo makes a wide range of certified products, such as pasta (spelt, wheat, kamut, corn, buckwheat), cereals, puffed spelt, extra virgin olive oil, tomato sauces, and - last but not least - their fairly traded "Caffé della Pace". Their coffee is directly imported from a Guatemalan co-operative of small scale Mayan producers and produced in collaboration with Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchù.
