Our Acacia Mangium Project is proving to be a successful investment opportunity in our agro-forestry portfolio because of its diversity of end user markets where the vast and varied possibilities are endless.
Our Eucalyptus Project is our longest running project with a varied range of end user markets. We were the first company to introduce a mutually beneficial business model that allowed outside investments into Brazilian agro-forestry.
The Eucalyptus Project is currently closed to new investors.

The Bixa orellana is a small perennial evergreen tree that produces beautiful seed pods from which come the much sought after natural yellow/orange/red colourant called Annatto. We grow the very best Bixa orellana trees, picked for their combination of seed pod-yield and high aril bixin content - ensuring that the harvests from our Annatto Seed Project achieve the highest possible market price.
Our Rapid Growth Biomass Project is, we believe, a 'futureproof' investment.Global demand for wood chip pellet/biomass is increasing rapidly, and our sustainable short rotation plantations in Brazil will be key to meeting this demand, where market expansion is expected to at least double by 2020.
