OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT

Amafruits promotes the use of sustainable and renewable sources in all aspects of our business—from the sourcing of our fruits to the packaging and delivery of our products to consumers. We are proud to partner with completely sustainable businesses and operations in the Amazon region guaranteeing that we use only wild-harvested açaí berries.

The Amazon rainforest accounts for about 25% of the world’s remaining tropical rainforests and its diversity must be preserved. Fruit production there is mainly based on gathering, the collecting and extracting of renewable natural resources in a sustainable way. Since producers grow trees, collect only the fruit, and take care of the forest, gathering helps recover depleted areas and preserve the native forest, avoiding Amazon deforestation.

Through açaí and other fruits, we are all helping protect the Amazon rainforest and spread an understanding about ways we can live sustainably and preserve our precious planet for future generations.
