working with local ingredients, creating natural 100% products

Amazon flavors move the spirit of Manioca Brasil, which seeks to connect people to the Amazon through creative and natural foods made from three principles: working with local ingredients, creating natural 100% products and promoting fair trade with producers, communities , cooks who are the basis of Pará cuisine.

Created in 2014 by Joanna Martins, Manioca produces items such as sweet pepper jams, priprioca and taperebá; the cupuaçu candy; the black tucupi sauce and the seasoned tucupi; Jambu flower liqueur and manteiguinha beans, among other items that are processed and sold by Manioca. In addition to valuing products from the Amazon region of Pará, the business contributes to the development of the local production chain and Brazilian gastronomy.

“We currently have 30 suppliers, of which 14 are family farm producers. On average, 40% of our entire purchase comes from family farming. Producers are selected for the quality of their products and their desire to grow. We support these people with training initiatives, access to technologies and guidance to improve product standardization"Joanna Martins, CEO of Manioca
