Açai (a-sa-ie) is a small dark berry that grows in large clusters on the açai palm. This tree is inherentto the Amazon and the fruits have been part of the local diet. Thanks to their exceptional combination of nutrients Açaiis recognized as one the world’s most nutritious berry species. Furthermore it’s the ideal food source for vegetarians or vegans who find certain substances more difficult to find in their diet.
our “special grade” Açai
Why two Açai pulps are not alike This has to do with a few factors. On the one hand, the originof the berries: Do they come from wild picking or from plantations? Our açai berries grow wild throughout the Amazon rainforest and are picked once a year by local tribes.
The second factor is the speedat which the berries are pittedand frozen. The shorter and more efficient this process is the betterthe nutrients, flavor and color are preserved. Our açai berries are processed in less than 24 hours, which helps explain the premium quality and flavor.
The third factor concerns the ratio of açai berry pulp versus – water. Our açai contains the highest percentage of pulp and is therefore given the “Special Grade” quality label.
So three times the highest score!
wild & free
Açai grown in the wild is harvested only twice a year so that the trees have time to regenerate and replenish themselves with
Of course, no pesticides or other chemical pesticides are ever usedand the entire growing and harvesting process is done completely organically.
Our Açai meets all the highest quality standards and will continue to do so.
A showpiece of which we are proud and which enables us to offer our customers the highest quality and tastiest Açai available on the market.
the story behind the products
We stand for ethicaland sustainable trade, with attention to people and nature. We only work with like-minded parties (cooperatives) who, in
collaboration with the local population and using traditional techniques in a low-
impact manner. By purchasing the fruits in this sustainable way,
local farmers have a guarantee of afixed and recurring income.
If they did not have this income, they would be forced to make these
so called “worthless” land to sell, usually resulting in deforestation.
We realize that Açai comes from far away, so it has a heavier carbon footprint
but we continue to work in this sustainable way and set the bar super high. This way
we try to compensate the distance a bit.
