About

Maracujá Solutions

Maracujá (mar-a-koo-SHA). It means passionfruit in Brazilian Portuguese, and we can’t think of a better way to sum up our work. Maracujá Solutions is passionate about helping companies in the food, agriculture, and textile industries create a healthier and more sustainable world; the fruits of that passion are companies’ measurably improved triple (people, planet, profit) bottom lines.

Those improved triple bottom lines are achieved after we work together to identify, build, audit, and market sustainability initiatives. And we don’t just do this in the United States – Maracujá Solutions’ extended family of experts has experience with sustainability programs and marketing strategy all over the world in the food, agriculture, textile, and CPG industries.  Whether aiming to achieve an established third party certification (organic, Fair for Life, etc) or to develop a customized program for your company, Maracujá Solutions will be able to draw on its many areas of expertise to ensure your program’s success. We look forward to working with you!
