Sambazon is the leader in chilled, açai-based products and is a pioneer in bringing açai to US consumers. The açai (ah-sigh-EE) berry is a grape-like fruit harvested from açai palm trees and consumed in Brazil as a purée in bowls with granola and fruits. The Company is vertically integrated with its own plant in the North East of Brazil. 

Its product range includes organic frozen pulp, sorbets, smoothies, juices, energy drinks and supplements. Its main focus is to distribute its products to grocery and natural stores as well as juice bars across the US and Asia (Japan and South Korea). 

The Company benefits from the growing trend for consuming ‘superfruits’ with functional benefits and harvesting practices that respect the environment and local communities.

Verlinvest invested in Sambazon in November 2008.
