ACAI ROOTS: FRESH BERRIES FROM AUTHENTIC BRAZILIANS
Have you ever missed something from your childhood? Something that was phenomenally good for you, and you knew it?
That was the feeling that gripped several Brazilian expatriates one day in 2005. They had just finished playing soccer in San Diego.
“We were each from Brazil, but we didn’t know each other there,” said Igor Pereira.
“We had all grown up with acai, and we started talking about how great it was in Rio with that active lifestyle – the Cariocas of Rio are famous for having an active lifestyle and a balanced diet, and acai is a big part of that. That was the missing piece: the acai. There were companies bringing it to the U.S., but it just wasn’t what we grew up with – it wasn’t fresh. So we decided to start Acai Roots™, and do it right.”
Today Acai Roots offers a full line of delicious and healthy acai berry products, formulated to exacting standards by Brazilians who were born and raised on a healthy diet of acai.
When you want the best, you go straight to the source.
Acai Roots’ wild-harvested acai from the northern Brazilian state of Para is considered the cream of the crop and is simply the best 100% natural acai available anywhere.
This top-quality acai is available in a variety of forms, including pure juice, frozen pulp and sorbet, in concentrated energy shots, and in freeze-dried supplements.
In addition to promoting a healthy, active lifestyle, the founders of Acai Roots are also deeply committed to protecting the rainforests of Brazil, and improving living conditions in Brazil’s densely populated urban barrios, called “favelas.”
Besides practicing sustainability, Acai Roots actively supports projects like Rhythm of Hope, which provides life mentoring through programs including Projeto Cultural Arte Consciente, and other programs working to break the deadly cycle of drug abuse and violence.
“It is no exaggeration to suggest that Acai Roots is truly a good corporate citizen, said Rhythm of Hope co-founder Phillip Wagner. “It’s fantastic to see a business show this kind of conscience, especially one with such a great product.”
