BUSINESS: Canopy Sur
CITY: Ecuador
Country: Ecuador
Canopy Sur a restaurant and gourmet supply business, introducing rainforest ingredients like macambo, paiche, neapia, and fruits and vegetables to chefs and new urban eaters in Ecuador.

Working with Kichwa, Secoya and Kofan communities we identified products of great interest and
potential for chefs and restaurants and began to provide them on a regular basis in 2016.

A network of chefs is introducing interesting products to new urban audiences and creating basic
supply chains to connect rainforest communities to distant markets.

These new products are now
poised for expansion in specialty food markets as well as culinary schools and hotels. Our most popular product comes from a cacao relative called macambo, which is a fruit whose seeds are 20% protein, ideal for vegetarians, vegans and athletes!
