GO NUTS for Fairtrade on National Nut Day!- Fair and Funky

Updated: Feb 25


“Despite the name, the journey of a Brazil nut begins in Bolivia…

Gatherers forage the nuts from deep in the Amazon rainforest.  They go on collection camping trips for days or weeks at a time, braving: jaguars, electric eels, piranhas, vipers, vampire bats… and the threat of a nut falling on their head.  These nuts are in fact seeds, which grow in pods the size of a coconut or grapefruit.  Each pod can contain up to 25 of the Brazil nuts we see in the shops.  Brazil nut shells are so hard that humans need a machete to crack them.
