Samay is more than just a brand.
it's a mindset.
a purpose driven brand
Our mission at Samay goes beyond providing natural, socially and environmentally responsible foods. We were born with the purpose of connecting cultures, communities, and individuals by sharing unique superfoods cultivated in the abundant and rich soil of the Amazon Rainforest’s heart in Ecuador. We aim to nourish not only the body but also the mind and soul through nature’s wisdom and energy.
Our commitment doesn’t stop there. We hold a strong belief in supporting indigenous tribes who grow our products using sustainable farming practices passed down through generations. By creating a market for their products, we are contributing and empowering the Kichwa communities of the Amazon to continue their sacred work of protecting and caring for Mother Nature while also positively impacting their livelihoods.
Samay’s intention is to serve as a bridge for creating and expanding well-being, health, consciousness, gratitude, and union among the planet. Join us in our mission to connect and nourish the world!

our origins inspire us
I was born in the middle of the world, in Ecuador, located in the Andean mountain range. I grew up surrounded by mountains, volcanoes, rivers, seas, and jungles. The variety of ecosystems and cultures that coexist in my country has shaped my vision. This has sparked my passion to understand diversity in all its forms and to see life from different perspectives. That is why I am inspired by the mission of connecting different cultures and communities. I hope to share my roots and a piece of Ecuador through products that promote social responsibility, sustainability, and fair-trade chains. Samay is a project that was born from this vision and has the purpose of supporting and positively impacting indigenous communities in Ecuador, while promoting well-being through natural foods that embody the energy and wisdom of nature.
Live the spirit of nature through Samay!
