Açaí Exports Create Hunger Posted on 5 Apr 16:30 , 0 comments
Açaí was a nutritious staple for hundreds of years in the Amazon, but is now becoming a luxury. The wholesale price of açaí has increased by more than 60 times since it first became marketed commercially!
Many poor are now priced out of an important part of their diet. By encouraging local production of açaí around the world, we can all realize the benefits of açaí while lessening hunger in the Amazon.
By encouraging home production, we hope to lessen the effects of hunger on the native populations in the Amazon, which do not benefit from the profits of the health product corporations.
This has been our aim from the start, and we can't thank you enough for joining this worldwide movement promoting healthy eating by growing locally.
