WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Belém do Pará, 100% Amazonia is truly an authentic Amazonian company. Our focus is on the preservation and vitality of the forest. We also value social and environmental responsibility which is reinforced in our day to day of doing business.
After many years working in the acai berry supply chain, with expertise in international trade, Fernanda Stefani and Joziane Alves started their own endeavour to bring the Amazon beyond Latin America frontiers. Ten years later, 100% Amazonia has grown into a small but impactful business based in the Amazon Delta, employing more than 15 full-time staff members and contracting specialists on a project by project basis.
In everything we do, we take ethical action, walk our talk and above all, drive positive change.
"A social company with roots in the forest."

CREATING SUPPLY CHAINS
Through our experience, we make forest conservation real, added to significant business growth in a global market. We develop supply chains that involve traditional and indigenous communities in the Amazon, encouraging the extraction of goods by those who live, respect and know the region.
Quality, Stability and Regularity are key markers when considering supply chain models in the Amazon, in effect, respecting the limits of what nature provides. It is essential that we forge genuine partnerships and work in a way that benefits the suppliers in the long-term.
"Enhancing values of
the Amazon forest and its traditional communities"
Through the Aryiamuru Program
In the original Tupi-Guarani language, Aryiamuru translates to "the power of the mother", a sentence that perfectly captures the essence for the Amazonian culture; Aryamuru values memory and Nature, in other words, ancestral knowledge.
The program central objective is to moderate fair trade and socio-environmental activities, involving the extraction of resources traded between 100% Amazonia and the traditional communities of the Amazon.
TRADING FOR A BETTER WORLD
We strongly believe that the trading of goods and services can generate significant economic value by helping to reduce poverty and most importantly, preserve and reuse environmental resources. The opportunity for genuine, sustainable trade is a crucial factor to fight deforestation in the Amazon and address the current climate crisis.
