Both the Caatinga and the Cerrado shelter amazing landscapes, vast variety of flora, fauna, water resources, and great social and cultural diversity. Despite the numerous challenges faced, their people have interacted with difficulties in an increasingly proactive manner. This can be backed by figures and demonstrated by the growth and sustainability of enterprises from these biomes operating in domestic and foreign markets, getting rid of the stigma of lack of liaison and poverty to become healthy communities, having as a market differential a respectful relationship with nature and traditional knowledge.

Caatinga Cerrado Stand

The Caatinga Cerrado Stand is a joint stand in fairs and trade events where businesses participating in the Caatinga Cerrado – Eco-Productive Communities Initiative display their products, aiming to build partnerships and trade. Currently, it is at ExpoSustentat Latin America (fair of sustainable products and services), held in São Paulo on a yearly basis.

The Caatinga Cerrado Stand, formerly the Northeast & Cerrado Stand, is in its third edition at ExpoSustentat. In 2006, 31 associations and cooperatives, along with their networks, represented the wealth and diversity of the two biomes. In 2007, sure that fairs play an important role in trade promotion and improvement of family farming products, the second edition of the Northeast & Cerrado Stand was held, with the presence of 150 enterprises represented by 15 networks and partnerships, which, directly and indirectly, benefited 17,000 families in 14 Brazilian states.

In its 3rd edition, in 2008, 26 enterprises from ten Brazilian states participated in the Stand, representing 6,300 families providing products such as honey, nuts, fruits and fruit products, oils, herbal medicines, phytocosmetic products, handicraft, bio-jewelry and more.
