Hi, nice to meet you! Welcome to Horta!
Welcome to Horta!
We are a Nature Tech agroindustry of amazonian ingredients and cultivate Non-Conventional Food Plants (so-called PANCs) through the best practices of syntropic and regenerative agriculture.
Horta promotes health and well-being through technology and nature.
Our plants are Amazonian and developed without the use of pesticides.
After planting and harvesting, they undergo a sanitization and freezing process.
Afterwards, the plants are freeze-dried and powdered, retaining all their functional, medicinal and nutritional properties.
The freeze-drying technology allows water to be removed through sublimation, where it changes from its physical to gaseous state, without going through liquid state. Pretty interesting, right? This technology is what keeps all of the properties above well preserved and more concentrated in our products. It also makes our transportation and storage more practical, and expands the expiration date for decades.
Therefore, we are able to combine technologies that produce super ingredients in a healthy ecosystem, regenerating nature and offering a diversity of usage for your business, through practical and simple logistics.
The products commercialized by Horta da Terra can be applied in a variety of recipes for food and drinks, creative and innovative cuisine, including supplements and functional food. They also serve cosmetic, medicinal, herbal medicines and health and well-being industries.
The Amazon Rainforest as an innovation biome
Our purpose: promote amazon’s biodiversity, by enabling access to anyone on the planet, to the nutritional, functional and medicinal powers of plants.
Our activities involve a network of partners to develop knowledge, technology, science and healthier relationships with all forms of life in nature.
Making this happen requires attention, dedication, a lot of love and compassion to fulfill our purpose.
We are very happy to have you here!
So feel free to get to know every detail about Horta!
