 Abstract: The international market for organic goods has increased immensely during the last two decades, asconsumers’ preferences for more “sustainable” products have grown. Organic agriculture hasperceived potential to contribute to sustainable development and to enhance smallholders’livelihood. As certified products may help producers gain market access and induce pricepremiums, organic methods may bring additional, non-market, on-farm and intra householdbenefits. Certified organics, therefore, are increasingly considered a potential instrument for ruraldevelopment in Brazil.This paper analyses the potential of a sustainable development strategy for smallholder producers inBrazil in the framework of the international market for certified organic products. The institutionalsetup of organics in Brazil is explored as well as farm level rationales to enter the internationalmarket of organic goods is analysed. Coffee production is, according to the Brazilian Ministry ofAgriculture (MAPA), one of the economic cornerstonesof national development, and the vastmajority of coffee farms belong to smallholders making it important for maintaining rurallivelihoods. Therefore, coffee was selected as a commodity when exploring smallholder organicproducers’ rationales for entering the international market of certified organic goods.The findings indicates that the organic sector in Brazil comprise several projects aiming atpromoting the smallholder organic production as well as promoting the marketing of Brazilianorganic products, both at the international level and domestically. The study also found that organiccertified goods not always bring with it increased revenues for smallholder producers despite theprice premiums of the certified organic products. In the case of organic coffee production in MinasGerais, the revenue was decreased compared to conventional producers. The study indicated thatthe rationales for converting to organic coffee production were connected to non-market benefits asopposed to (financial) market benefits.
