From the Amazon, by local people
The Pracaxi tree is an important tree in the Amazonian rainforest, as it makes nitrogen available to other plants and improves soils for forest regeneration and recovery in degraded areas.
Local people in the Amazon gather the fallen seeds from the ground, without damaging the surrounding flora. They are paid a fair price, so communities are incentivized to protect the forest and are supported in their choice to live a rural life.
Families work on different species spread over the year and trainings are created to gather the right feedstock at the right moment, which is essential for the product quality. Communities are supported throughout the stages of production, with respect to equipment for cooperatives, technical guidance and protective equipment.
Through the production of Pracaxi oil, the living conditions and livelihoods of the families and communities involved are given a boost.
