GENUINE FAIR TRADE
Original Organic Amazon Acai grower Sambazon Inc is founder of the Sustainable Amazon Partnership (SAP) with the Brazil Foundation and Peabiru Institute that ensures Fair Trade and sustainable management of the Brazil Acai regions and communities, as well as Acai training programs and alternative income-generating activities for 1000’s of women, youth and small family farmers.
Up until a decade ago or so, acai berries were unheard of by anyone outside Amazonian regions.
Acai is a dietary staple for people in the Amazonian rainforest regions, has been harvested the same way for centuries. The 60- to 80-foot palm trees are scaled by workers who cut the branches, then slide back down the smooth, slender trunks to the ground.
Because acai berries are so low in sugar and acid, which protects most fruits, they must be picked, processed, flash-pasteurized, and frozen quickly before being transported out of the Amazon. If left unprocessed, the fruit will oxidize, turn brown, and lose its beneficial nutrients.
