Cooperval Craft Beer Fase 2

In 2018, Phase 1 of the Seed Project Craft Beer provided support to the Cooperval Cooperative, boosting their income and making an impact on their community. We designed a Business Plan that made it possible to co-produce a craft beer made of baru - a native chestnut found in the Brazilian region of Formosa, Goias - and its launch was quite successful. For the second phase of the project, we are going to take this experience of co-branding the baru nut craft beer to other impact entrepreneurs. The latest version of the Baru Nut Beer has gained a new production partner, offers brand-new packaging, and features some additional flavor enhancements. Investors in this Seed Project will receive a 10% bonus in MDABRL in January 2020.

Take a look closer at the project
The Baru Beer - a craft brown ale with baru nut - was created, tested, and refined during Phase 1 of the Craft Beer Project. It quickly proved to have a solid commercial appeal in a growing domestic and international market niche. With the success seen thus far, we are going to tap into the great potential of Phase 1 to improve the profit margins on beer sales during Phase 2 with the intention of, ultimately, increasing revenues and the visibility of the communities involved. Our new production partner is the Dádiva Brewery, a brewer that also focuses on impact: the company boasts a larger female employee base than male, its brewing facility produces nearly zero-waste beer, and it is currently applying reverse logistics to recycle packaging materials - among other measures.
