Promoting the value chain of natural ingredients can be a robust strategy for the fight against deforestation and the mitigation of climate change. Our project will contribute to making this a reality.

Awareness of sustainability and environmental impact has resulted in an increasing demand for products that incorporate natural ingredients . This project aims to support associations of producers of non-timber forest products in the Amazon region and integrate all the actors in the natural ingredients value chain. It will partner with industry to identify promising products and guide Amazonian organisations in the proper use of sustainable approaches in the manufacturing of products that incorporate natural ingredients.
