BRAZIL NUTS FROM
Cause when you choose GHF, you help preserve the Amazon Forest and encourage us giving value to sustainable extractivism , culture and labor of traditional local communities;
GHF seeks not only commercialize Brazil Nuts but to give light to its rich story and potentials;
HEALTHY FOR THE BODY, SOUL AND PLANET
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
We work with the commercialization of Brazil nuts based on transparency and fair trade. Thus, the standing forest generates income and, consequently, is valued and conserved. And the excellence in quality of our processes guarantee an extremely nutritious Brazil nut, with exceptional flavor and crispness.
In order to fulfill our commitment to supply fresh, crunchy and highly nutritious Brazil nuts all year round, GHF has a high standard of industrial quality that guarantees excellence in the processing of nuts.
When your order is placed, nuts go through a careful process that begins with a wash, followed by drying and autoclaving, which increases the amount of whole nuts in the shell breaking process. We followed a mix of electronic and manual selection of almonds, which then go on to sterilization by pasteurization, eliminating any risk of contamination.
Hence, chestnuts are automatically classified by size and types and then undergo strict final quality control. The almonds are then packaged to reach you with incredible flavor, crispness and quality.
What makes us different
Choosing GHF you collaborate to improve:
Give Value to a special origin and tradition
Through fair trade, we value sustainable extraction and the history and tradition of those who live in and of the forest:
Keep the Standing Forest Upright preserved!
Through the total traceability of all processes in our value chain, from extraction to the final consumer:
Alqueriane Mendes dos Anjos (Deca) – Comunidade Paraná do Abuí, Território Alto Trombetas I
"GHF helped us a lot through the means of resources it brough. It helped a lot with the internet because we live in a very difficult place to find access to it, many people here have relatives outside the communit and they say 'oh I need to talk to my son and daughter, I need to use the internet'.
Today GHF is a partner for us. We are happy with them, they are helping us, giving this support. I hope the people from GHF never leave us (...) GHF is a partner, it is a friend, it is a mother, it is everythingm but especially the people who help us, they are our friends."
Augusto Duarte Cordeiro (Cureba) – Comunidade Moura, Território Alto Trombetas II
"GHF has been working in a way that the price we agreed was kept, they don't go down until the end, so we work calmly without worry (...). GHF helped me organize this new shed to store the nuts and I thought it was a good for me.
Sometimes I had nowhere to put the nuts. One day, I left about 60 bags of chestnuts in front of the old shed. It was a Sunday, then I went to church and when I came back there were 3 bags missing. Not anymore, we store everything in that shed, we close it and the nuts are protected."
Maria Neusa Oliveira Cordeiro – Comunidade Moura, Alto Trombetas II
"I think we can trust in GHF. In the first year that we worked, they trusted in us and complied with the price agreement on the Brazil nuts."
"A GHF is a partner, it is a friend, it is a mother..."
"The price we agreed was kept, they don't go down until the end, so we work calmly without worry"
GHF superfoods are collected by indigenous peoples and traditional quilombola and riverside communities, which for hundreds of years have lived in balance with the forest through the practice of sustainable extraction. The collection of Brazil nuts is a traditional activity directly linked to the culture of these communities and, very often, it´s their main source of income.
Our partnership for supply of raw materials is the way we find to support and finance the local bioeconomy.
In this way, GHF seeks to not only commercialize Brazil nuts, but also to give value the whole story behind it, specially the people who make all of this happen: the chestnut collectors and collectors.
