Their Brazil nuts are sourced from the Madre de Dios region of Peru, better known as the Amazon Nuts in the communities that gather them.

 

The Brazil nut trees grow across the rainforests of Peru, Brazil and Bolivia, they grow wild in their natural biodynamic environment and it is not grown as a crop

 

Its scientific name Bertholletia, it is one of the giants of the rainforest that grows up to 50 meters high and can be hundreds of years old.

 

The Brazil nuts are collected by local castanheiros (or castañeros) during the heavy rainy season from January to March.

 

Collection is usually far from their community, so CANDELA supports castanheiros by financing their long harvest time without financial interest.

 

The harvest is loaded and carried by hand by castanheiros until they can reach the river where they are transported for processing at CANDELA.
