At Seleno Health, we believe it is our responsibility as consumers, suppliers, and retailers to protect the incredible heritage, culture, and history of Maca and Cacao in Peru and create an ethical and sustainable way to produce products that benefits all involved.

We have a direct partnership with our farmers and community in Peru and are committed to protecting them from exploitation which can be prominent in many areas of the industry. The farm carries out the total production of our final products meaning all profits are shared back with them, resulting in fair payment for premium farm-to-table products, a better than living wage, and eliminating the middleman.

We also donate a percentage of our profits to a development fund to improve the lives of those who make our products. We believe that if we benefit from the rich agricultural resources supplied by our farmers, then so should they.

When you buy any food, do your research, buy ethically, and support companies who are giving back. Your purchase is like a vote; vote wisely for the people trying to preserve and protect, not profit.


Maca Community

In the community that grows the Maca for our products, we are currently working on these projects:

• Funding improvements to the conditions at the San Jose de Quero school
• Improving our farmer’s house in terms of infrastructure, consumables, heating, water, internet, and sanitation.
• We sponsor 14 children from the community and pay for their annual schooling needs.
• Funded the building of accommodations to house eco-tourists, allowing the community to generate a long-term sustainable income in addition to their current trade.
• We are working to create cultural and professional development programs for our farmers, their families, and the local school children; this will improve their levels of education and professional experience

Rescue Cacao Program

We are also supporting the Mishollo Agrarian Community in Tocache, Peru, by aiding the liberation from drug cartels and criminal opression in order to reconnect them with their ancestral roots of Cacao cultivation. For over 30 years, farmers of Cacao in Peru have been pulled into an illegal drug trade by cartels needing coca plants to produce cocaine for export into Western markets. This has left indigenous farmers and their communities devastated and often faced with bloodshed and violence to comply plus instilling a disconnect and loss of the traditions, wisdom and connection with Cacao as a master plant and medicine. In 2012 the Rescue Cacao Program was developed to bring change to the industry. Our contribution helps purchase farming equipment so they could produce organic Cacao for export. By choosing our Cacao, you encourage them to reconnect with their ancestral roots of Cacao cultivation and help preserve the culture and history of Cacao in Peru.


Every time you buy our Maca and Cacao products and sign up for our online courses, a percentage of those profits are donated to our community projects.
