Consolidação da produção e organização da comercialização de frutos industrializados do Cerrado de forma solidária
Project aimed at establishment of structure for production, marketing and management of the initiative by a group of Agrarian Reform Settler families which already produce baru nuts and sweets for sale in local and regional markets, meeting fiscal, sanitary and environmental regulations.
The region is under dire threats from soy monocultures and extensive cattle raising, monopoly of large multinational producers, which excludes family farmers and results in widespread deforestation of Cerrado areas.
