The word Chicza derives from the tree from which the chicle necessary to produce it is extracted, the Chicozapote. These trees can reach 30 metres of height and are found in the 2nd biggest forest in the world, the Great Peten.
This forest is 4 times the size of our peninsula and is considered the second green lung of the world after the Amazon rainforest.
This interesting document is the result of a joint study of Comieco/GMI (Green Management Institute) aimed at highlighting products that could create innovation in environmental protection and waste management, and that wanted to emphasise the virtues of the Chicza project.
As this authoritative study shows, in addition to clear environmental benefits, a very stringent economic factor is tied to chewing gum disposal. A biodegradable and organic chewing gum like Chicza would allow to save much more public money which today is being wasted to clean pavements, monuments, streets and squares from the remnants of traditional gum.
In fact, Chicza is made of 100% organic ingredients, such as: Organic gum base; Organic evaporated sugar cane juice in powder; organic glucose; organic Agave syrup; Mint, Lime, Spearmint, Cinnamon and Mixed Berry organic flavours.
