What we do

We offer a curated selection of nutrient-dense botanical food ingredients from South America


We structure reliable, fair-traded supply chains of botanical ingredients. Our partners are top-of-class players with uncompromised commitment to quality, safety, and transparency.


We work together with our customers to develop new ingredients according to their technical requirements and help them formulate their new CPG products.

Success Cases

Our major commitment is to provide our customers with the best possible ingredient sourcing experience, and our highest goal and reward is to build long lasting business relationships. Here are some stories of which we are proud.

Building a New Supply Chain

We supported a CPG company at risk of a supply shortage of a freeze-dried fruit snack to develop a new supply chain in Brazil. We worked with our Brazilian manufacturing partner, Liotécnica Tecnologia em Alimentos, to cover all aspects of the project: identifying growers, raw material organic certification, processing, and final approval of product and documentation by our customer’s Quality Control team.

Developing a New Product

We worked with a local Distributor to develop an improved version of one of its top-selling products. Again, in close collaboration with Liotécnica in Brazil, we not only developed the new, improved ingredient, but a multi-ton business that has now an integrated and resilient supply chain.

Upcycling food side streams

We worked with an organic, gourmet coffee grower in Brazil to bring to the market the best coffee fruit (also known as Cascara). The coffee fruit we offer is very special: from the organic farming practices and harvesting techniques for the production of gourmet coffee, to the final steam sterilization step that delivers a flavorful ingredient with the best microbiology profile in the market.
