The Rainforest Company

The Rainforest Company is a commercial enterprise, yet it has the claim to act sustainably at all levels. At The Rainforest Company, they have set themselves the goal of using natural products to create an offer for a more conscious and healthier life. In a world that is often characterized by fast-paced lifestyles, they make sure that healthy eating is not a luxury. They want to improve the world with their possibilities - from small to large. With every puree that is processed in this country, they provide the people in the Amazon with a fair and secure income. Their wild harvested açaí berries come from direct trade with small farmers, fresh from Brazil. The rainforest is essential for life on earth and the natural balance is seriously threatened by commercial exploitation and destruction. With their innovative products they therefore contribute to a more sustainable use of the rainforest and invest in the environmental projects "Iniciativa Verde" and "Ipam", which plant trees locally.
