This is the premise of the two new publications launched by the project “From the Amazon to Belém.” They provide a step-by-step guide on what to do and how to do it, as well as a questionnaire to evaluate ongoing initiatives.

What are the “Eight steps to undertake in regenerative food systems?” This is the question answered by the eponymous publication of the project “From the Amazon to Belém,” led by the Regenera Institute and the Frontiers of Development Institute, with support from iCS.

In addition to teaching how to form effective work groups and the main formats of food commercialization, the guide also provides tips on systems, legal and tax advice, explores innovative value propositions, provides information about the best choice of commercial outlets and also dedicates chapters to transparency, partnerships and the expansion of the production chain.

However, this was not the only publication released on February 29, during the webinar “Can we talk about the production and commercialization of agroecological foods?” The “Guide for Evaluation of Practices for the Fair Trade of Agroecological Foods” is also now available for free download on the website of the project “From the Amazon to Belém.” The purpose of this tool is to operate as an analysis mechanism to determine the degree of development of the entities in six particular areas linked to the sale of agroecological foods, which were jointly developed in the initial phase of the project. They are: Ties with origin, Transparency as a principle, Network governance, Habit formation, Guarantee of access and Waste policies.

How does the guide intend to do this? Through a questionnaire that summarizes some of the attributes that are required so that the commercialization initiatives are aligned with the best practices of transparent, responsible and fair trade.
