💚 Founded in 2000, Sambazon was the first Certified Organic and Fair Trade Açaí company in the world, supplying ethically sourced Açaí products from a closed loop supply chain to ensure its products have complete traceability and transparency from the palm of the tree to the palm of your hand.
💚 Sambazon operates on a triple-bottom-line business model.They uses commerce as a vehicle to create a more prosperous future for the people and the planet by providing ways to enjoy the Delicious Powers of Açaí.
💚 Sambazon products, including smoothie packs, Ready-to-Eat Açaí Bowls, juices, energy drinks and Açaí Bites range from $2-$10 individually and are made from USDA Organic, Non-GMO, vegan, and Fair For Life Fair Trade Certified Açaí.
💚 Sambazon’s Fair Trade certification has helped to protect over 2.5 million acres of Rainforest and its rich biodiversity inside, and has benefited more than 20,000 local farmers. With the commitment to invest up to 5% of local Açaí purchases back into the community, Sambazon has helped to build healthcare centers, community centers and schools.
💚 Açaí berries are 80-90% seed but we don’t waste a single seed. They’re either handcrafted by local women’s co-ops into beautiful jewelry that they can sell for income, used in our factory to power our boilers, or donated to local brick and tile makers to fuel their furnaces so they need less wood which protects the rainforest from deforestation.
💚 We’re trying to use our business to combat challenges like: poverty, malnutrition, inequality, and deforestation… these are our enemies.”
