Always Fair Trade Certified.
From the beginning, Sambazon was as much about giving back to the community of farmers and protecting the biodiversity of the Amazon as it was providing this delicious, nutritious food to the wider world.
By creating our own responsibly managed supply chain of Certified Organic and Fair Trade Açaí, we were able to do all of this, establishing a direct connection between our farmers and you along the way.
“We wanted to start a business to introduce this amazing superfood to the world, directly connect consumers to the sustainability of indigenous communities and to help protect the biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest.”
- Ryan Black Sambazon CEO & co-founder
Palm to Palm
We believe in transparency. And we understand how important it is to know the food you and your family consume is of the highest quality, while also being ethically sourced, transported, and processed.
By creating our own supply chain, we can oversee every step of its journey, from the moment it is hand-harvested and transported by riverboats, to its inspection (by hand) and environmentally responsible processing. It’s our guarantee to you: From the palm of the tree to the palm of your hand.
Our Certified Organic and Fair Trade Açaí is hand harvested by local farmers that minimize our impact on the local eco-system.
Transported by riverboat down the Amazon, our berries are then checked for quality, color, consistency and aroma directly on our dock.
Our berries are processed at 2 of the most advanced, eco-friendly Açaí processing plants in the world.
This is where you come in. Enjoy this delicious, nutritious, responsibly sourced berry, and get your purple smile!
