Coomaru is a cooperative that commercializes Brazil nut, collected and processed by families of the Rio Unini Extractivist Reserve
Cooperativa Mista Agroextrativista di Rio Unini (Coomaru) was founded in 2010 to operate a Brazil nut processing plant and help communities from the Reserva Extrativista (RESEX) do Rio Unini to have a source of income. In 2014 the processing plant generated $100,000 from a harvest of 15 tons of Brazil nut, to the benefit of 188 families on the reserve. The environmental organization Fundaçao Vitoria Amazônica (FVA) and the Brazilian government's Instituto Chico Mendes de Conservación de la biodiversidad (ICMBio) supported the organization of the Brazil nut's production chain, the construction of the plant, and technical training for the local population in the RESEX do Rio Unini.
