COLOMBIA energy-drink full of antioxydants. Açaí palm is an amazonian plant cultivated in Brazil. Global demand for the fruit has expanded rapidly in recent years, and açaí is now cultivated for that purpose primarily. In May 2009, Bloomberg reported that the expanding popularity of açaí in the United States was "depriving Brazilian jungle dwellers of a protein-rich nutrient they’ve relied on for generations."Although most açaí is grown conventionally, the US company Sambazon established USDA Organic certification for their açaí palm plantations in 2003 and has also implemented fair trade certification.
