Camu Camu grows mainly along the river in the rainforests of the Peruvian Amazon region. The rain forests are indisputably among the most fascinating and mysterious regions of our planet. They are vitally necessary for all of us and yet still very much at risk. Illegal coca cultivation leads to massive erosion, and weed killers such as Agent Orange cause massive environmental pollution. The rain forests are an inexhaustible reservoir of medicinal and useful plants, which still await their discovery.
Peru is among the countries with a huge genetic diversity. It has the third largest tropical rainforest in the world. There are approximately 20,000 species of higher plants. This is around 10% of worldwide occurrence. Approximately 5,500 species are endemic, they are found only in Peru.
In order to meet the rapidly growing demand for Camu Camu products, the shrub is cultivated in the meantime in plantations. This avoids the exploitation of the wild plants. This would be detrimental to the sensitive ecological balance. The state-subsidized programs for the sustainable cultivation of Camu Camu benefit both the population and nature.
