Peruvian Whole Fruit Spread
Violeta began by selling her motherÍs artisanal sauco, or elderberry, marmalade in Lima while getting a higher education. RogerÍs education landed him a job with a local non-profit working with villagers to produce elderberry wine. The two met and decided to take their work many steps further. By introducing both sauco and aquaymanto (goldenberry), both native species, to their communities, and training the farmers in organic cultivation methods, they have been able to increase the income to these families significantly. They purchase the resulting crops at fair prices and produce fruit spreads and other products for the national gourmet markets. And with Culinary Collective they hope to make inroads into the US market and thus expand their purchasing needs and ability to reach many more families. This product has been produced free of gluten, dairy, soy, and genetically engineered ingredients.
