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.
Two key factors drove us to start BLUE MACAW FLORA®. First was our proximity to the largest and richest biodiversity in the world which gave us direct access to a wide variety of exotic fruits and medicinal plants. This is an industry with tremendous potential, and in that capacity we can facilitate the process for leading international companies to develop innovative products using all natural, alternative ingredients. Second was our strategic presence near Sao Paulocity, the main financial and industrial center in Latin Americawith easy access to reliable shipping lanes via air, land, and sea. Both of these components – along with our local market expertise – created a significant, competitive edge that BLUE MACAW FLORA® could bring to all of its customers.
It was this unique scenario, after years of nurturing the idea and reaching a level of knowledge and maturity we believe would be successful, that inspired us to leave our corporate careers with global multinational companies (pharmaceutics, medical devices, and auto manufacturing) behind and to found BLUE MACAW FLORA® in August of 2007.
A BLUE MACAW (ARARA AZUL in Portuguese) is a native bird found in the Brazilian central region. The choice of the name “Blue Macaw Flora” was based on our intention to offer to the world something original and exclusively representative of Brazil’s biodiversity along with our respect for responsible, sustainable practices. As such, whenever a professional and reliable source of natural ingredients based on plants and fruits from Brazil is needed we are confident that BLUE MACAW FLORA® will come to mind.
