Our operations

With a strategy sustained by the diversification of our business, we are one of the main commodities marketers and exporters in the country.

Sugar: We originate and market raw sugar, white sugar, and ethanol. We have great expertise in key markets, with trading and execution teams managing the annual movement of millions of tonnes of products on every continent.

Cotton: We have sales offices, sorting rooms, and warehouses near the biggest cotton producing regions of Brazil, ensuring compliance with our customers' administrative, operational, and logistical needs.

Rice: We have a strong distribution network, which supplies the African continent, the Middle East, Central America, and the European market – considered the most demanding in terms of quality standards and lead times.

Coffee: We are among the world's three largest traders of the Arabica and Robusta coffee varieties. We operate in a coordinated manner across the supply chain – from the relationship with farmers, storage, sorting, and logistics to product marketing and exports.

Global Markets: We have a strategic geographic presence in Buenos Aires, Geneva, São Paulo, and Singapore.

Grains: We operate in the main producing regions and have an excellent logistics structure of warehouses, port terminals, and waterways. We also participate in the processed corn market, with products both for industry and the end consumer, and with feed made for pet food and fish.

Oilseeds: We operate on the soybean, cottonseed and groundnut markets. We market our own brands of refined soybean oil (Vila Velha and Valência), and have the cottonseed meal (Pagador) and peanut meal (Mandubi) brands. We are among the largest soybean originators, processors and exporters in Brazil.

Juice (citrus): We operate on the FCOJ (frozen concentrate orange juice), NFC (not from concentrate orange juice), and Taiti and Sicilian variety lemon juice concentrate markets. Among the by-products are CPP (pelleted citrus pulp bran) and citrus fruit essential oils, and dry and washed peel.
