Surya Brasil Showcases EcoTree Food Line with 100% Organic Cocoa Powder at Natural Products Expo East 2009

Surya Brasil, known for its premier organic and natural cosmetics, introduces its new line of organic food products called EcoTree by showcasing Organic Cocoa powder at this year’s Natural Products Expo East/ Biofach America at the Boston Convention Center, September 24-26th . Besides its regular body care booth, the company will have a second location inside the Organics Brasil booth #1927 in Hall B. According to Luis Oetting, Food Sales Manager at Surya Brasil in Sao Paulo, “The same philosophy and proven quality as well as commitment to the consumer and the environment are present in this organic edible line of products with raw materials sourced from Brazilian rainforests.”

Eco Tree Organic Cocoa is made with the finest organic cocoa beans, cultivated in the shade of the Atlantic Rainforest in Bahia located in the Ilheus region of the country. The unique flavor is rich and complex and offers the chocolate connoisseur a distinctive taste. The product, packaged in a 7.1 ounce box, is pure cocoa bean powder with no sweetening or additives and is gluten-free. “This product contains only pure cocoa grown without pesticides or chemicals fertilizers and it is manually harvested in a sustainable manner,” adds Oetting. “By purchasing this cocoa, you support the conservation of the remaining Atlantic Forest, because without the shade provided from the trees, the cocoa can not grow.”

Surya Brasil will also be offering organic freeze dried Acai powder, which delivers integrity in both flavor and nutritional value. Containing only100% Acai powder, the product can be added to juice, desserts, or smoothies.

Expo attendees are also invited to visit the company’s body care booth #1012 to learn more about their natural hair color/hair treatment products, organic body care and their new men’s line Sapien. The Shave Cream from this line was awarded Best Shaving Cream as part of the second annual Beauty With a Conscience Awards held by Natural Solutions magazine. Bettina Bond, National Educator for Surya Brasil, will be present to answer questions about Surya Brasil’s hair and beauty products as well as educate about the healing plants and fruits of the Amazon Rain Forest.
