Brazil nuts are an all natural product coming from the rainforests in Bolivia.
The brazil nut only grows in the wild, its home is deep in the Amazon Rainforest . The nuts develop inside large pods a lot like a coconut These pods are then collected when they mature and fall to the ground.
This trade represents a sustainable future for the rainforest. Families in Northern Bolivia can make a living by collecting brazils and other wild non timber forest products, a living good enough to provide medical care and university level education for their children.
I joined in April 2005. I am responsible for South American markets. Spanish language comes in very handy here! I really enjoy working with the people and cultures in South America and in particular with Bolivia. Trading a wild harvested product from the Amazon is pretty special. In 2010 I also started to work on our international sales strategy and have been involved in the sales expansion into new markets throughout the world
I joined Freeworld in July 2012 after graduating from Newcastle University. I primarily work in logistics, handling document execution and shipment scheduling. I also manage pine nuts and help manage cash flow. I am also managing brazil nuts in Ailsa’s absence. Please contact me below if you have any questions.
