Paramo Snacks, is a women-owned company, created to accomplish two things: First, to bring the wonderful flavors of unique Latin American fruits & veggies to consumers through GOOD CHIPS; and second, to help small holder farmers who grow these exceptional superfoods while protecting vital ecosystems, essential to produce WATER.
About Our Roots
We were inspired by a heart-warming community advocating as strategic caregivers of an endangered and priceless ecosystem: The Paramos. Paramos are essential water sources and powerful carbon sinks that combat climate change. They are also one of the world's most diverse hotspot with thousands of endemic species.
2% of our sales go towards small holder farmers in support of regenerative agriculture practices and the reforestation of the Cloud Forests in the Andean Paramos.
Paramos are natural “water factories”, critical for the survival of millions of people.
The Andean paramos are important global carbon sinks.
They can capture 10x more CO2 per m2 than tropical forests.
Paramos are the most biodiverse high-altitude ecosystem in the planet. They can be found in the Andean mountains in Latin America.
Paramos are important regulators for climate change mitigation. They act like a “sponge” storing water from fog, drizzle and glaciers, and then releasing it into the lowlands.
