For many years Fero has been recognized as a model organization, for its leadership, its sound management and governance and the quality of its coffee.
The cooperative is also recognized for the impact it has had in its community. The cooperative has built four “blocks” (school rooms) in every primary school in each of the five "kebeles", or villages, it has members in. They also provide awards such as tools and other farm implements to model farmers. They offer material support to government agronomists, providing stationary and tools for workshops implemented with members and community at large.
Quality-wise, Fero has been consistently awarded for excelling at the ECX and its another reason why they’ve been recognized as a model organization. Year by year, over 80% of its production is graded "Grade 1" by the ECX
