The verdict is in: the Acai berry is one of the most effective natural food products on the market today! Everywhere you turn the Acai Berry is being praised for its array of health benefits, especially its extremely high level of antioxidants. Native to South America, this superfruit grows on the Acai palm tree, and has been called the wine of the Amazon River.
While historically, the Acai business has been based in Brazil, Investment Group Colombia (IGC) has identified an investment opportunity in the cultivation, processing, and export of acai fruit in Colombia .
Consider these facts:
- Colombia produces a bigger Acai fruit than its Brazilian counterpart due to the specific conditions of the Colombian Pacific coast where it grows.
- Colombian ports are more than 2,000 miles closer to the critical US market than those in Brazil, greatly lowering shipping costs and transit time, especially important for this perishable fruit.
- Total Acai palm area covers more than 100,000 hectares of land in Colombia and has an equivalent production potential as Brazil.
- The Colombian government has an active program to promote the cultivation of Acai with the indigenous population living on the Pacific coast.
There are currently two Acai investment opportunities that IGC has identified. One is related to the exportation of current Colombian Acai production to the US and other markets. The second opportunity is to build a new Acai processing plant in compliance with USDA and other certifications to open additional markets, such as organic food buyers.
Experts believe the Acai berry is one of the most nourishing natural foods on earth. It keeps us young, healthy, and feeling our best. For this reason, the Acai berry is now a primary ingredient in many of the most effective supplements on the market.
