As for acai, it is very easy to buy organic acai in France but very difficult to buy a acai where workers do not go up to the top of the palm tree risking their lives. The acai plantation with which we work practices the reforestation in the Amazon with the Pinot Palm tree and especially the workers have a health insurance and climb with the help of a machine at the top of the tree.
