Superfruit powder contract

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE Sateré-Mawé, a Brazilian tribe of Amazon Indians that has set up a production consortium based in Maués, has signed its first export contract for powdered guaraná and açaí fruit manufactured by the tribe. The consortium, which represents 120 Sateré-Mawé producer families, inked an agreement with a French-based distributor that will sell the products in Europe, reported Agência Brasil. Producers are receiving technical support from Brazil's state-run agricultural research company, Embrapa. The first contract, worth EUR170 000, is for 2 000kg of powdered guaraná and 150 kg of açaí, which will be shipped in several stages. The first shipment of 220kg of guaraná has already left Brazil and more monthly shipments will follow. Products are first transported by boat to Manaus, the state capital of Amazonas, and then air freighted to Europe.
