Patria | Frooty

16 May 2024


In June 2014, Patria invested in Frooty, a Brazil-based açaí sorbet manufacturing company. The company’s business model employs local workers in the states of Amazonas and Pará for the sustainable harvesting and processing of superfruits in the Amazon rainforest.

With Patria’s support, Frooty has become the leading açaí sorbet manufacturing company in Brazil, with a production capacity that exceeds 120 tons a day of açaí sorbets and 45% of the retail market share in the country. Frooty established environmental programs to protect approximately 40,000 hectares of the Amazon rainforest since the production of açaí is highly dependent on the health of the ecosystem. The company’s commitment to sustainability extends to its circular economy practices, where waste from pulp production is utilized as fuel for steam generation.
