Our story

Theo Smits and Dirk-Jan Oudshoorn met in 2013, working for an Indonesian NGO. Theo was looking for a new challenge after 30 years working in the Netherlands and Dirk-Jan decided to follow his girlfirend Alexandra Vosmaer, who had the dream of working with endangered orangutans. In the years that followed, Theo and Dirk-Jan experienced first hand the destruction caused by the massive deforestation. In 2018, they decided to set up their own social enterprise, on a mission to reverse deforestation, by introducing deforestation-free products, creating more value for forest communities whilst increasing the value of the forest and providing truly sustainable alternatives for consumers around the world.
