“Our participation in an event of this importance is natural. Açaí and jiu-jitsu have a very nice history in common, as the Gracie family brought the fruit from Belém do Pará when they came to Rio de Janeiro, and the cream became an integral part of the sport's lifestyle and diet developed by the brothers”, says Sabrina Zajakoff, Brazil marketing manager at OAKBERRY.

For the brand, there is also the additional importance of sponsoring the women's event, strengthening women's participation in sports and putting Brazilian talent in evidence.

“Jiu-jitsu assumes that everyone is able to fight regardless of physical strength. Female empowerment goes exactly through the discovery of women's ability to fight, defend themselves and develop in any aspect of life”, says the executive.
