Lessons and Learnings in Promoting the Naidí Chain in the Colombian Pacific
Naidí from the Pacific (açaí in the Amazon) is the fruit of a palm tree that, due to its high concentration of antioxidants, is considered a superfood with potential applications in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food industries.
In the Pacific region, the sustainable use of naidí is regarded as a potential productive alternative that can address the high rates of deforestation in this territory.
This case study conducted for Fondo Acción presents the history, lessons, and insights gathered by the Fund in its process of supporting and strengthening the community-based enterprise Sociedad Naidiseros del Pacífico S. A. S.
