This is a social entrepreneurship. We promote sustainable products from plants that exist naturally in Amazon and Andean forests. By doing so, we preserve the forest habitats and empower local communities.
Producing and selling these fruit products provide people with an alternative fair income. Farmers are empowered and engaged with the conservation of their forests. That makes them key actors in solving environmental issues in the region.
Coming from different professional backgrounds we believe that with the promotion of native fruit products we can tackle socio-environmental problems in forests.
"We believe we need to give a new value to our pristine forests and to the ancestral knowledge from communities that live within it. To this end we are tailoring natural products from the Amazon rainforest!"
"Selva brings a perfect win-win situation: The producers gain a fairly paid access to the market and the consumers have the chance to get to know and love amazing new fruit. And is there anything more beautiful than trying new tastes?"
"The transformation of fresh fruit into a tailored product with a longer lifespan allows diverse uses and applications of the product, to the benefit of producers and consumers"
"The Amazon forest provides diverse ecological services, one of them is the unbelievable variety of fruit. Thanks to the knowledge of Amazonian cultures, these tastes could be developed and are now ready to be shown to the world."
