Amazon and Andean Alliances

Yhú Life has formed an alliance with indigenous communities from the Amazon rainforests of Ecuador, specifically Kichwa and Shuar communities as well with indigenous communities from the highlands of Ecuador- the Andes regions of Colta, San Martin Alto, and Sigchos.
We are moving forward to maximize the worldwide emphasis on nutritional benefits from the use of superfoods, ancestral grains of great nutritional value, such as Quinoa, Amaranth, and Chia seeds. Additionally, we use less commonly known superfruits, such as “Mortiño” or Andean Blueberry, “Moras” or Castillian Blackberry and “Uvillas” or Goldenberries.

We are passionate about building a growing awareness about the ancient practices used by these communities in the care of our valuable rainforest and the ancient nutritional products that thrive here. These practices will ensure cultural and environmental sustainability for the production of these super ingredients, considered by many to be sacred. Together we are committed to ensure the production of organic products, within their natural biospheres.
Many of these communities are organized via associations of producers such as Wiñak, Tawasap, Kalliari or Tsatsayaku. Yhú Life plans to serve as a bridge to the external market- regionally and internationally.
To ensure financial success at all levels, Yhú Life will add value to these products by paying a fair market price and increase benefits to participating communities through profit sharing.
Our Amazon Alliance has the recognition and support of various indigenous organizations: CONFENIAE, the confederation of indigenous organizations of the Amazonian region of Ecuador, and COICA a consortium of indigenous organizations within the 9 countries that encompass of the Amazon rainforest delta.

Yhú Life works passionately to merge the best of nutritional, organic ingredients into products to enrich your diet, while creating a reciprocal relationship with people who have been the gate keepers of time honored traditions deep within our country for the benefit of generations to come.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we do and you will join us in maintaining this majestic environment and its peoples.
To you and for us all, Yhú Life
