SUSHISAMBA is one of our latest partnerships, aimed at bringing awareness and support to halt the destruction of the Peruvian rainforest.
With SUSHISAMBA’s roots in Peru and Brazil, the plight of the Amazon rainforest has always resonated deeply with the team. Through their special ‘Asháninka’ menu and cocktail, using ingredients grown by the Asháninka community, SUSHISAMBA will make great strides in helping Cool Earth to save at-risk rainforest in Peru. The partnership will continue to grow through a series of supper clubs, events and culinary initiatives.
“Since the brand’s inception, we have been committed to celebrating South American food and culture –specifically the culinary riches rooted in Peru and Brazil as they are a huge part of our identity. Cool Earth is the perfect partner for us to celebrate SUSHISAMBA's heritage, support the preservation of the rainforest, and help bring elements of the ingredients from these villages directly to our guests.”

SUSHISAMBA ARE PARTNERING WITH 16 ASHÁNINKA VILLAGES TO SAVE RAINFOREST IN PERU.
The Asháninka are Peru’s largest indigenous nation and until now have lived deep in the heart of the amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep. Our Asháninka Partnership is in the Ene Valley, one of the world’s most at-risk areas. Illegal logging and the cocaine trade are destroying the forest. With the support of SUSHISAMBA, Cool Earth is linking villages together to shield millions of acres of neighbouring forest.
