Ethical & Environmental food sales conglomerate "Sambazon" goes digital to maximize profit and give back to the environment. Sambazon is one of the biggest health food fair trade companies in the USA. It was the 1st certified organic and fair-trade Açaí company in America. Sambazon is unique in selling açai (the most powerful superfood in the Amazon area). Açaís have been harvested by hand from the rainforest’s palm trees for centuries. This nutritional powerhouse has long been a staple of indigenous diets. Sambazon is unique in fair trade and is committed to the protection of rainforests and its indigenous people. Samabazon has effectively preserved over 200,000,000 acres( and counting) of the Amazon Rainforest by paying fair wages that directly support 30,000+ family-orientated farmers. Similarly, another ethically sound attribute of Sambazon is the 5% local reinvestment of açaí purchases which goes directly back into schools and hospitals.
The process of handling orders from the B2B/ B2C web shop, marketplaces, and big customers like Walmart, were still done manually. Sambazon had to increase the headcount of their inside sales /administration team from three to eight people in the last 3 years, just to manually process the orders (due to their exponential growth and succession). Consequently, this resulted in infractions on the company’s part that were significantly deteriorating their profit margins.
