The Juan Valdez character was created by the National Federation of Coffee Growers in 1960 and several decades later continues to be one of the most recognized names worldwide. In the mid twentieth century, the coffee market was led by roasters, who mixed beans of different origins to make their business more profitable. Colombia was not recognized as a producing country and it was at that time, and as a result of that opportunity, that the need for differentiation was born. The solution was simple: to create Juan Valdez as the visible face of a 100% Colombian premium coffee.
Juan Valdez and Conchita, his mule, became part of a branding strategy between the National Federation of Coffee Growers and Procafecol S.A., in which the consumer could recognize that his coffee had a Colombian origin if he saw these two characters on its packaging. This created immediate recognition and positioned the country as one of the best producers of Arabica coffee in the world.
Creating Juan Valdez was a brilliant idea that helped to tell foreigners where the best mild coffee in the world came from and why it was the best. It arrived in the United States in the fifties and sixties. It represents the Colombian farmer: hard working, proud of his beautiful land and the quality of the coffee fruits he produces. The strategy was clear and contributed in an important way to position Colombian coffee in the minds of consumers.
It all began with the selection of a coffee character that could represent his guild in a very competitive market. However, Juan Valdez was so well received that it became a brand that has left the name of Colombia high in the world. Since 2002, the brand has had Juan Valdez stores, whose main objective is the sale of premium coffee in order to continue positioning this product as one of the great virtues of Colombia. Juan Valdez was born to make the world fall in love with the highest quality and flavor of its coffee, but without realizing it became the coffee of an entire country.
In 2002 they opened their first store in the El Dorado airport in Bogota. In 2007, committed to the development of people and with the purpose of continuing to build the country, the company established a labor inclusion program, which became its flagship project to promote the inclusion of people with cognitive disabilities in its stores. That same year the first edition of the book "Juan Valdez, the strategy behind the brand" was launched, which narrates the tactic of valuing Colombian coffee developed by the National Federation of Coffee Growers.
Juan Valdez is the company with the greatest diversification of its portfolio. It offers twelve different products in presentations of 250, 340 and 500 grams, which, according to the Euromonitor report (Euromonitor International, 2014), depend on the channel where the product is offered: Coffee Shop, Supermarket and Hypermarket.
As a brand they represent, around the world, the values, and traditions of Colombian coffee growers. They deliver to the coffee growers the highest value for the quality of the coffee and important royalty resources for the sale of each cup or product that bears their signature around the world. They currently have more than 330 stores in Colombia, more than 130 international stores and are present in 33 markets around the world.
