What is biotrade?

Biotrade is based on the economic paradigm of sustainable development. This implies creating a development model that satisfies the needs of the present without compromising the capacity of future generations to meet their own needs.

As the past is always the experience on which decisions for today and tomorrow are based, we must remind ourselves that the world economic growth in recent years has come at a huge cost to the environment and ecosystems. This is why the paradigm of sustainable development is increasingly important. It represents an alternative for global growth alternative that guarantees the possibility of a better future.


Main differences between traditional and biological trade:

  • The framework of CBD (Convention of Biological Diversity).
  • The search for the preservation of biodiversity.
  • The promotion of human and economic development.
  • The use of non-threatened species.
  • The promotion of the involvement of indigenous communities.
  • The network with a large number of stakeholders in the private, public and civil industry and society.


Biotrade in Peru is the activity that promotes the trade through the sustainable use of Biodiversity native resources. This implies comply with:

  • A local economy.
  • Strategic Alliances.
  • Generate value added products.
  • Criteria of social equity and economic profitability.

Why we wanted to be part of Biotrade?

One of the most important commitments Inkanatura wants to make via our websites and and trademarks Inkanat, Macamix, Maca Vitae and Terra Amazonas, is to market our products with the criteria of environmental, social and economic sustainability.

Our business philosophy is based on respect for nature and mankind:

  • Nature is an unlimited source of knowledge, but it not very well known or publicized yet.
  • All peoples and cultures of the world have an enormous wealth of knowledge of their surrounding environment, as a result of many generations of learning.
  • Our Western society is fascinated with technology and modern life, but has neglected universal knowledge and timeless nature.
  • Fair trade and equal opportunities for all is only possible by accepting the knowledge and products of all people equally.

We develop our commercial activities by integrating a vision characterized by social and ecological aspects. This implies not only our support of human development for the communities we work with, but also the sustainable use of natural resources through agricultural practices and organic harvesting practices by integrating management plans, in coordination with the competent authorities and stakeholders.

We also have a record of our organizational experience in managing biodiversity, in order to make contributions to the development and transfer of knowledge that we acquire in the field.
