Learn more about our history
It all started on trips to the Amazon Forest, getting to know the rich fauna and flora, not to mention its population, which brings even more wealth to this place. Soon there was a feeling of taking to each of our customers a piece of this FLORESTA EM PÉ (“Standing Forest”), thus taking what nature has of the purest and being able to value the work of each of the region's residents. FLORESTA EM PÉ, it’s more than a company, it’s a dream being idealized, seeking natural and cultural preservation, leaving this legacy for the next generations.
