    Açaí is more than a super fruit, it is part of Amazon culture. There is a myth from an Amazon indigenous tribe that says the magical berry was sent by god Tupã during a hard time to feed the tribe, after that all tribes in the Amazon started to include Açaí in their diets. More details about the local Açaí culture and its importance you can find in another session Açaí Culture Besides the myth, nowadays the true is that economically it has helped more and more local communities in the Amazon region. The Açaí commerce in 2019 registered a market size of US 720 million and following the forecast to 2025 it should achieve around US 2.1 billions, as much as the consuming of Açaí increases.

We are the first company to see Açaí berries as a healing for the Amazon rainforest by itself, beyond that, we see it as a great tool to prevent world food crisis and climate changes. Many studies and projects have been made over decades through Embrapa to define the best way to attend the growing global demand with the minimum impact to the biodiversity, the conclusion was that is needed to limit the number of Açaí palms per hectare in native areas, to avoid monocultures and to keep the efficiency in terms of berries quality, the technique is called "minimal impact management". However, the Açaí palms nativity placed in areas called "varzea", naturally irrigated by the river every each 6 hours, it just provides good berries's harvest from June to September every year, that's another challenge to attend the global demand. The researchers then concluded that Açaí palms needed to migrate to firm ground, where attended by an efficient irrigation system and surrounded by the right biodiversity agents, it can provides good berries's harvest during the whole year and even bigger production than the native Açaí palms. On that way, Açaímazon has the vision that the Açaí palms in firm ground, recovering degraded areas, it can also represent a CO2 farm generating carbon credits to be commercialized in the growing carbon credits market or even to be applied to reduce the CO2 footprint caused by Açaí transportation around the world.

Açaí-vågen

Açaí har alltid varit en del av Amazonas kost. Det runda, lila bäret, som växer i klasar av palmen Euterpe oleracea, konsumeras av många praktiskt taget varje dag av invånare i regionen, särskilt de från delstaten Pará. Men i mitten av 1990-talet blev det en vurm på gym från Rio de Janeiro och São Paulo. Berömmelsen om dess näringsmässiga fördelar, rika på antioxidanter, antocyaniner, fibrer och med högt energivärde, erövrade snabbt konsumenterna i sydöstra regionen.
