BERGOLIO works together with small cooperatives in Peru. The cultivation of Camu Camu is organized through cooperatives. The trade is socially economically responsible organized (Fair Trade).
In the region they ensure obtaining a high local value added with Camu Camu products. It should not – as for centuries for example with coffee or cocoa – come to economic exploitation of the South by the rich North. Consumers and producers are obliged to cooperate. Higher prices are making possible a regular life income in the growing area. Consumers in Europe and North America will benefit from a richer range of extremely health promoting agricultural products and potential product innovations.
