Being a traditional food source in Northern Brazil, açaí feeds an entire chain of production and creates income for innumerable Brazilian families.
Recognising the fruit’s importance for the region’s development, Barbosa factory is working in partnership with a local Açaí Producers Association.
Barbosa is building the Association’s headquarters and also buys the açaí seeds for use as fuel in the ceramic kilns. According to Sr. Eliézer, the President of the Association, “the seeds used to lie in the street and we had to pay to have them disposed of.

Once the headquarters are completed, the producers will have space to hold meetings and produce frozen açaí pulp for export.
