Sucafina has formed a joint venture with Brazilian specialty coffee grower Cia Agropecuária Monte Alegre.
“The partnership with Monte Alegre is the result of a successful, personal relationship for over a decade. We are both family companies, sharing the same values, with a long-term focus,” said David Behrends, Managing Partner & Head of Trading at Sucafina SA.
“It is also a key step forward toward achieving Sucafina’s vision of having a fully traceable Arabica coffee supply chain and to be the leading sustainable ‘farm to roaster’ coffee company in the world. Sucafina is already working with many of the leading farmers in the world and through this new agreement we will be able to directly offer our clients some of the highest quality coffee in Brazil.”
José Francisco Pereira, General Director of Monte Alegre, said: “This agreement is based on mutual trust and will make both companies more powerful on the local and international markets, combining Sucafina’s global footprint with Monte Alegre’s tradition of specialty coffee production. Together, we will be able to increase our market share and to offer different trading tools to our customers.”
