By 27 de November de 2019Sin categoría

In order to establish stable ties with production entities and organizations in Peru, Q’omer® established a collaboration agreement with several Peruvian entities, both producers and entities that support and accompany indigenous communities specifically in the Amazon region of Peru.

Since 2014, a framework agreement was established that is still in force between Ecohabitat Innovations S.A., The Confederation of Amazonian Nationalities of Peru  CONAP, the Central Organization of the Aguarunas Communities of Alto Marañón  OCCAAM, and Juan David Escobar, SEO of Q’omer®.

Such entities are cooperatives of producers and/or entities representing indigenous communities and producers of native raw materials in the Amazon region.

The goal of this alliance is to value natural and/or organic product chains by seeking their positioning in the foreign market, especially in Spanish, in addition to strengthening the institutional management capacities of member entities with a focus on eco-business and biotrade.

This initiative started from the will of all member entities to build business processes based on the natural capital of native communities but always from the vision of fair trade and respecting native biodiversity and generating new alternatives to promote community development, always under a sustainable resource management approach and with social impact.

supplying communitiesThe indigenous communities involved through this alliance number around 120, with approximately 75 producing families each. This is a population of Awajún origin located all in the province of Bagua in the Amazonian region of Peru.

Through these alliances, it is hoped to work cooperatively with the communities not merely as suppliers of raw materials but as strategic allies in this process, which in addition to marketing products seeks to ensure a chain of reliable value and a return to communities from a positive social impact on their populations.
