Our Partners

Our partnerships are long-term and are based on common aims, shared responsibility and reciprocity – a fundamental value between indigenous peoples.

Our partners are stewards of the Amazon rainforest and its biodiversity: indigenous communities, smallholder farmers, indigenous and other forest people's social enterprises, responsible processors and aggregators, direct-trade and purpose-driven and ethical companies, local NGOs, foundations and impact investors.  Some of the organisations we partner and collaborate with include:

Cepro Yanesha is an indigenous cooperative representing more than 117 Yanesha coffee farmers from seven communities located in the Oxapampa-Ashaninka-Yanesha Biosphere Reserve in Pasco region in Peru.

AFIMAD is an indigenous forestry organization harvesting Brazil nuts directly from the forest. It represents eight communities and works with more than 200 indigenous producers in the region of Madre de Dios in Peru.

Eco Ola delivers regenerative and sustainably produced amazonian superfoods that are delicious, healthy, and done right. Eco Ola maintains the highest standards of excellence in how they grow food, how they treat their partner farmers, how they interact with the environment, and how they deliver food to you.

Imlak’esh Organics is a direct-trade functional foods company building an ethical bridge between small-scale farmers and the global marketplace through positive impact on agriculture and human health, positive impact on carbon sequestration, reforestation, living wages, gender & racial equality, and education.

We collaborate with Rabo Foundation, a leading impact financier working with small-scale farmers around the world.  By working together, we are increasing both the availability of trade finance and technical assistance to indigenous cooperatives in the Amazon. 

We are development partners of Advocates for International Development (A4ID). A4ID provide us with invaluable pro-bono legal support through its top-quality legal partners.
