Maya Nut Institute

MayaNutInstitute.org Tax ID 82-0560068


We work to conserve tropical rainforests by rescuing lost traditional knowledge about the Maya Nut (Brosimum alicastrum) for food and income. We have taught more than 15,000 rural and indigenous women to harvest and process the Maya Nut and our partners have planted 1,300,000 Maya Nut trees.

756 rural and indigenous women in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, El Salvador and Honduras have now formed businesses to produce and market Maya Nut.
