Chuta® Cultivation Partners
Establishing Chuta® as a new food product in the European market is a process made step by step. JatroSolutions has developed collaboration projects to make the Chuta® value chain a big success. Chuta® plantations continuously provide us with knowledge about improved agronomic management practices and allow us to develop commercial partnerships with German, European and international companies. Two of our front runner partners are located in Paraguay and Cameroon:
Chuta® Plantation in Paraguay
A Chuta® plantation has been established in Paraguay. One part of the cultivation area is set-up within an agro-forestry system.
Chuta® Plantation in Cameroon
A few years ago, the Chuta® plantation in Cameroon was established. There, sample material is produced to perform various tests.
We are currently looking for new growers interested in participating in the sustainable production of a new food product. JatroSolutions provides both high-quality EdibleNut planting material and professional guidance on Chuta® cultivation and commercialisation. We are establishing a versatile, delicious and nutritious product in the European market!
