BLUE MACAW FLORA® is a young company with a great passion for nature and biodiversity. We believe that nature’s most basic products such as fruits and medicinal plants can benefit all of us in ways that are not even yet fully understood. However, extracting them in a responsible manner requires a new way of thinking, behaving, and taking action. Our mission is to do just that: bring the best of Brazil’s natural ingredients to the world in a sustainable fashion. This is our main VALUE and CREDO.
