The highest Quality
standards in the jungle is it possible ?
Despite the challenge to produce in the jungle we are certified IFS, organic, Kosher and more recently Fair For Life (Fair Trade).
Environemental Impact ?
Every care has been taken since 1987 to ensure that the wild environment is not harmed. The product is certified organic since 1997, standing as a guarantee that sustainable harvesting practives are followed by all pickers. The extraction of the palms has minimal impact on the environment, since no machine is used for harvesting and the palm regrowth is sufficient to enhable sustainability.
Since 2015 we are certified Fair For Life from Ecocert-IMO to guarantee the good Trade practices on our social responsibilities and looking always how it will benefit to the workers and producers communities.
We are one of the oldest producer of Barima wild hearts of palm and the unique in Guyana.
Our mission is to deliver to our customers what the Wild Nature is providing us in the Amazonian rainforest of Guyana with the highest pure quality in the best packaging keeping in mind it will benefit to our partners in the jungle, our workers and our indiginous communities.
