At Gratefood Co, we go straight to the source, the amazing Amazon forest in Brazil, one of the most bio-diverse place on earth.
We work with the local community to bring you the freshest, premium quality, organic Açaí berry wild harvested straight from the Amazon forest.
Açaí berries are one of the highest antioxidant superfruit, rich in healthy essential fatty acid & dietry fibre and contains Vitamins A and C, protein and many other essential minerals unique to the amazonian soil.
90% of the Açaí berry is its seed which is inedible and has no nutritional value. All the goodness lies within its 10% skin with all the antioxidant, healthy essential fatty acids, fibre and other nutrients.

GRATEFOOD GREEN FOOTSTEPS
Our pilot project “Gratefood Green Footsteps” started on 1 November 2021. Read more to know what we do, as a business, to help reuse, reduce and recycle things.
To reduce the production of more cooler bags that might end up in storeroom or the bin, you can also opt for bag-free delivery. Our frozen products are transported in a frozen cooler box or truck, picked upon reaching your home and straight to your freezer.
Since the launched of our e-commerce store, we have been using this bag to house your order for deliveries. We are heartened to know that we have many returning customers and with each returning order, comes a new cooler bag that has been used for merely an hour, or two at most.
A simple question from a customer asking if we accept those almost mint bag to re-use sparked our team to explore this possibility. If there’s someone out there who is concerned about this, there would be others who think likewise!
