These two cities are part of the 9 priority area in Antioquia. Antioquia government has started the project Antioquia libre de Coca (Antioquia without Coca).

In the Sacha Inchi centers farmers can buy Sacha Inchi seeds, all materias needed to grow Sacha Inchi and also sell the Sacha Inchi stars and the Sacha Inchi leaves. The Sacha Inchi centers will test, collect and do the initial process of separating the Sacha Inchi star. GMS will purchase the left over of the star for tea and bring to Sacha Inchi seed to the processing center where they will be process into snacks, powder, milk or pet food. GMS want to have at least 5 to 10 Sacha Inchi centers in all the states that grow Sacha Inchi in Colombia.
