About us

Olá, we are Felipe and Bruno, founders of Tropix.

We have been living in Berlin for 4 and 7 years respectively, and have been friends for almost 20 years. We have both grown up in Rio de Janeiro, where juice bars were part of our everyday life - there are more than 2000 in Rio alone! You can find one on almost every corner, and they are a reliable source of quick, delicious, healthy drinks and food.

Brazil is a large country that spans many different climates. In juice bars, you'll find fruits from all of them - from the colder south to the Amazon jungle. Açaí is certainly the most popular of these, served in smoothies or bowls. Although we love living in Berlin, we think there are few places like that here, where you can find something healthy to have on the go or quickly at home. That's how we came up with the idea of Tropix.

Our Products

It is very difficult to get fresh produce from one side to the other of a country as big as Brazil. The Amazon is 2,800 km from Rio, which is almost as far as Berlin is from Cairo! The solution for that is freezing the fruit shortly after harvest. All juice bars in Rio work with frozen fruit pulps because they are very practical, hygienic and simple to store. In addition, they are easier to prepare.

Our partners

We work with reliable importers who bring to Europe products that come from sustainable agriculture practices.

These partners buy produce from small, mostly family-based farms. These farmers employ traditional farming methods that have a low carbon footprint and do not damage the environment.

Our suppliers do not add sugar, preservatives or anything else - the products on sale here are only 100% natural frozen fruit. Our high-quality pulps are the result of an efficient production process that provide our costumers and distributors the best quality products in the market.

The products we sell are verified by the governments of the European Union, Brazil, United States and by independent certification companies. Our suppliers hold the following certifications:
