A constant cycleto add value and grow

We have a defined work process, we accompany the producers providing support from soil management to harvest and then we move on to the industrialization of the final product and its export, thus creating a constant cycle that provides benefits for each link. Every year we are growing in collection, production and export thanks to the joint effort of all parts of the production chain.

Applications of the cassava starch

Cassava starch is a thickener and stabilizer used in fruit cakes, soups, desserts, breads, soy sauces, and meat products. It can withstand long periods of cooking without breaking down.

Products made with cassava do not lose quality when frozen and reheated, because cassava retains its thickening capabilities throughout these processes. Cassava turns clear and gel-like when cooked and completely dissolves when used as a thickener.

Many products contain cassava starch, preferred for its superior gelling, thickening and texturing properties.
