Brazil

We established a Brazilian business in 2002 and have expanded our operations into coffee, cocoa and spices to reflect our changing customer needs in the region and our growing expertise.

 

Growing Responsibly 

Our employees are actively involved with community programmes focused on promoting child welfare, education and health. We have joined various industry bodies to further the cause for sustainable economic development, such as CECAFE (Coffee) and AIPC Cocoa Processors Association (AIPC). 

Cocoa

Much of the cocoa butter, cocoa liquor, and cocoa powder enjoyed around the world comes from our operations in Ilhéus, Itabuna and Altamira. Joanes is our acclaimed brand produced for the Latin American Food Ingredients industry.

 

Customers from across South America have the opportunity to work with our team at our Ilhéus Innovation centre, collaborating on product development, proof of concept, and refining existing application recipes. 

Coffee

We are one of the top three coffee exporters in Brazil. Our main office is in Santos, supported by 15 other locations including estates and offices. We are both easy to access and have a broad on the ground presence all year round.

 

We supply locally grown roast, ground and soluble coffee to international customers in the USA, Europe, Middle East and Japan.

 

At our fully integrated Milano coffee estate in Western Bahia, we produce premium Arabica coffee. The plantation is CAS – 4C Code of Conduct compliant and certified by Rainforest Alliance and UTZ. In addition, we procure large volumes of differentiated and certified coffees from growers, working closely with agri-input companies to help deliver a quality service to the farmers. 

 

Our coffee portfolio also includes specialty coffee – a niche but growing sector. We have a Q certified laboratory recognised as a SAC Premier Training Campus by Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).

Spices

We are one of the largest importers of spices into Brazil. We import paprika, chilli, turmeric, garlic, and cumin, as well as dehydrated vegetables such as onion and garlic  from the USA, Egypt, India, and China. Recently, we developed a pepper plantation in Bahia State.
