The History of Tomé-açu

CAMTA - FRUTAFRUTA's Encounter with Agroforestry -

FRUTAFRUTA began when it encountered with this Agroforestry.

Charmed by the passion and diligence of the Japanese immigrants engaged in Agroforestry through trial and error with numerous crops amid difficult conditions, FRUTAFRUTA directly imports the fruit ingredients and other types of ingredients produced through Agroforestry from CAMTA (Cooperativa Agrícola Mista de Tomé-açu), which is the local agricultural cooperative, in order to support the development of their Agroforestry. The link to CAMTA is an essential bond for FRUTAFRUTA.
