When two surfers visited Brazil in 1999, they found more than big waves. They found an organic approach to health and vitality. They found the superfood açai. And they found themselves starting Sambazon, a way to share these special fruits with the world. Today, it’s a global leader in premium sustainable and certified organic açaí products.
Sustainability at their heart

From their first taste of the superfood açaí, the founders of Sambazon knew these fruits were very special…
Being market-driven works best when you can see what the market is doing.
As a food and beverage company, Sambazon needed to ensure reliable delivery of a perishable product, and effectively handle a global supply chain that starts with local farmers in the Amazon region. Transparency was needed across the organization to reduce production costs and meet customer demand. And lack of visibility into their financial reporting was creating faulty forecasts and overproduction.
As a small company, Sambazon was not able to invest big money in a software solution. That’s why they were glad SAP could help them run and manage their business with ONE solution, with a short deployment time and minimal business impact.
“We’ve never looked back…”
Of the many factors that led Sambazon to pick SAP Business ByDesign, the biggest one was speed to implementation. The whole transition was incredibly smooth – they were up and running on a Monday, with business as usual, and by the end of the first week, they had processed orders, paid invoices and stayed on budget. Since then, they’ve never looked back.
SAP Business ByDesign has helped Sambazon reduce perishable losses from overproduction,with clear visibility to all areas of the business and forecasting. SAP supports business growth so Sambazon can spend fewer resources on finance and more on sales and marketing to grow the business.
Simply put, SAP helps Sambazon “run better.” Sambazon found the software that delivers the functionality they need today – and can scale to support the company’s energetic projected growth.
