Chicza is a 100% natural chewing gum. It is sustainably harvested from the chicozapote tree in the Mayan Forest. It is an organically certified and biodegradable gum, produced by a consortium of cooperatives under a fair trade scheme.

The tropical forests in southeast Mexico, along with the forests of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and Nicaragua, are part of the Great Peten—the second largest tropical forest in the American continent after the Amazonian.
In contrast with other regions in the country, where 80% of forests have been destroyed by tree logging, livestock and agricultural activities incompatible with the ecosystem, these tropical forests have not only survived, but have thrived and currently cover 3.2 million acres in the Mexican states of Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatan.

It is fascinating to see chewing gum makers, or Chicleros in the jungle. Their relationship with the chicozapote trees is an intimate and respectable one. It demonstrates that men and the environment can interact and sustain one another

The chicozapote is the most abundant tree in the Mayan Forest—the second largest one in the American continent after Amazonian. This is the tree that produces the chewing gum.

BLOG: LET'S TALK ABOUT THE FOREST
leaf One of the great advantages of the composition of Chicza is the ease with which it biodegrades. Once discarded, its completely natural components will become dust within weeks, and may even improve the texture of compost. For now there are four available flavors: mint, lemon, mint and cinnamon flavor latest. Soon a range of innovative tropical fruits, herbs and spices tastes will appear.
