Pupunha is a native palm tree from Amazonia, widely
used by nourishing industry in the improvement of
palmito, through reforestation cultures. The
“Compensado de Pupunha” represents the
exploitation of a subproduct of this industry,
objectifying the raw material production for the
moveleira industry, through a process of low
technology, with zero emission of pollutants.
The social and ecological boarding is the soul of this
project, stimulating new initiatives inserted in the
process of sustainable development in
underdeveloped regions.
