Socio-environmental

TOBASA's core values include the permanent care with the biodiversity, from its extractivist processes to the final delivery of its products – with environmentally friendly solutions – in all its business segments.

The company developed a babassu coconut supply chain with innovative and sustainable logistics of fruit collection, promoting the conservation of the babassu forests and encouraging the generation of income for an expressive contingent of agroextractivist families.

In this context, its action has been increasing the appreciation and awareness of the extractive families involved in the activity of the babassu coconut collection in the wide forest area of Tocantins, whose state is inserted in the Legal Amazon
