The fallen andiroba seeds are gathered from the ground and waters in the Amazon by local people. The people are trained to gather the right seeds at the right moment, which is important for product quality and the sustainability of the harvest.
The rural people are supported throughout the production process, with respect to equipment for use in cooperatives, technical guidance and protective gear. Families work on gathering different species spread over the year, providing a steady income. Receiving a fair price for fruits from the intact rainforest helps provide the means to live a life in the forest, which is our best defence against deforestation.
We believe it’s important to us to support initiatives that assist local communities and protect our natural resources. If you also value the story behind our Andiroba Oil, fill in the below contact form and we will send you more information.
