Our vision is to sustainably preserve the natural ecosystem of the rainforest in two ways: We counteract deforestation through sustainable forest management and fair trade of forest produce. And restore deforested and degraded areas in cooperation with local communities and grassroots NGOs.
In cooperation with local NGOs we have planted over 2.5 million trees in the Amazon rainforest. We make sure the trees we plant survive by planting suitable native tree species and work with our NGO partners to monitor their growth after project deployment.
We have saved over 12 million trees from being cut down by providing smallholder farmers in Brazil a financial incentive to pursue agroforestry of açaí instead of deforesting their lands to plant soy or rear cattle.
PROTECTING OUR PLANET
Food industry is responsible for one-quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and we are here to change that. Through our sustainable sourcing and production practices, we are fighting climate change by changing the status quo of the food industry.
Açaí is deseeded before it can be pureed and shock-frozen and the seed constitutes 90% of the fruit. Instead of disposing the seeds we upcycle them by using the dried seeds as biofuel to power the processing unit.
B CORP CERTIFIED
We have been recognized as a Certified B Corp in 2020 for having fulfilled the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
EATERNITY - CALCULATING OUR CO2
Through a Life Cycle Analysis, Eaternity Instiut has determined that our Frozen Açaí Puree and Bio Açaí Bowls have a lower environmental footprint compared to most products on the market: We have been awarded 12 stars for sustainability.
PROTECTION OF THE RAINFOREST
We donate 5 cents from each of our products sold to fund socioenvironmental projects in the Amazon rainforest which are focussed on restoring deforested areas and providing local communities support to pursue sustainable livelihoods.
