In modern times the products are almost always in a packaging, where the origin is lost, not knowing where it came from, how it is made, by whom it is made or if the sustainable and nutritional standards are adequate. In contrast, FLORESTA EM PÉ offers products that seek sustainability, and that is why we seek forms of sustainable production, with natural ingredients that follow international quality norms and standards, all to offer something true.
We create products knowing their origin, taking advantage of the wisdom and principles of local indigenous and riverside communities, which in each experience make us see the nutritional potential that the FLORESTA EM PÉ can provide us, after all, these peoples survive for generations by eating only what the Forest offers.
Guardians of the Forest
Every year in December, our extractivists partners return to our forests, which are mostly on the banks of the Juruena River, one of the largest and most crystalline rivers in Mato Grosso. Chestnuts are found in these areas, where they are harvested for approximately 4 months completely manually (70%) of fallen hedgehogs, the rest is left to feed the animals and for the forest to regenerate. Our forests have a sustainable management plan and organic certification.

Made at Origin
Generating income is one of the pillars of the FLORESTA EM PÉ, all of our production is done at origin because we believe that this way we generate value for those who need it most. Through fair trade and artisanal production we are able to make income possible for hundreds of families, transforming their lives and fostering the green economy.
MADE BY HUMAN HANDS, NOT MACHINES
That's right! Our process is completely handmade. Each nut is broken one by one, by dozens of people, bringing many different life stories behind the whole process, and in this way making each nut unique.
Body, soul and mind
We always say that behind each nut there is a story; after all, that is what we were born for, to generate a connection between everything and everyone. We want to take the highest standard of sustainable quality and a lot of love in our products to feed body, soul and mind.
