During Expo West, Mapa Imports, in addition to its full line of Del Prado Gourmet Nectars will debut its newest line: Amazonas Sacha Inchi Omega Oil and Nuts. Considered a “Super Food” from the Peruvian Amazon Rain Forest, Amazonas brand Sacha Inchi seeds offer a mild nutty flavor with no cholesterol or mercury, and are high protein (27%) and oil (35 - 60%). Amazonas Sacha Inchi oil is high in Omega family of fatty acids, with Omega 3 (58%), Omega 6(35%), Omega 9 (9%), and protein (27%). Rich in Vitamin A and E, Sacha Inchi is also a good source of Iodine.
“Mapa Imports is happy to share health and wealth with the Cancer prevention and survivor community at Expo West,” said John Gallagher, the companies founder and CEO. “Amazonas Omega Oil and Nuts are an extremely nutritious food and to support the work of the American Cancer Society, we’ll place a dollar in the jar every time an attendee comes to Booth #3885 and says “86 Cancer”!
Inspired by the good works of Paul Newman, MAPA Imports donates a portion of its sales of products including Del Prado nectars and juices and Amazonas Sacha Inchi to The Resource Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) tax deductible organization it founded to support the "Children of Ayacucho" Fund. The fund supports efforts to build schools, dorms, and orphanages in Ayacucho, Peru, a region that was severely affected by the Shining Path, and whose children lack basic necessities, such as food, shelter, health care, etc.
Additionally, Mapa Imports has partnered with many social service agencies in the Bay Area and California in 2009 with donations of more than 665 cases of all-natural nectar and juices and $6,600 as it helped sponsor local fundraising events including:
San Francisco Food Bank
L.A. Food Bank
SillyWalks for Hunger
St. Anthony's Foundation
YWCA, Chinatown Youth Program
State of California EDD
March of Dimes
TwestivalSF: Operation Smile

“As MAPA Imports builds sales and distribution of Del Prado all-natural nectars and fruit juices in California and the U.S., it is dedicated to supporting local charities,” explained Gallagher, grandson of Ricardo Chiari, one of the founders of Del Prado in 1958.
