Achieving organic certification to support local communities

Manutata sources Brazil nuts from different producers in the Madre de Dios. Communities involved in the collection of Brazil nuts often face issues with poverty and poor living conditions. Through the engagement with WWF, Manutata will train the Brazil nut producers´ association (APROMORI) in order to help their members obtain an organic certification and therefore increase the selling price and other economic benefits of their products.
