Although it may be said that “Tahuamanu’s” productive activities began during the second year of the 1990s, in 1989 a group of business people arrived to Cobija, most of them belonging to the coffee sector, who decided to investigate and analyze the possibilities of settling in Cobija and venturing into the Brazil-nut business.
Back then, most of the Brazil-nut in Cobija’s area of influence was exported as In-shell to the city of Belém, Brazil. There was no capability in place to acquire all the Brazil-nut that was being produced nor was there the necessary labor that could benefit from it in Pando, particularly in Cobija. In this regard, investments were made on high-end technologies with the purpose of processing the product and creating jobs.
The corporation was established - incorporated in 1989
by a group of 12 investors committed to the modernization of millennial and traditional forms of recollecting and industrializing the Brazil-nut.
A decision was made to build it in Bolivia’s most isolated and depressed area
Cobija, Pando, on the border with Brazil.
The company was funded
By the Inter-American Development Bank and contributions made by the shareholders.
We believed/ bet on the area: due to its density
In natural resources and perspectives of sustainable development.
The venture grew
and responded to the demands of quality and service sought out by the global market.
In 1995, Tahuamanu was capitalized
by the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC), the CAF – (Development Bank of Latin America) and the Fundación Bolivia Exporta.
Currently, has a structure of good corporate governance,
experienced executives and professionals.
It is the largest employer in the region
