The History behind Copajas: Minimally Processed Foods

Despite being a crop that is native to the region of Jaraguá do Sul, banana plantations are unprofitable and harmful to the environment. One alternative to this situation is establishing the diversity of cultures in the region. With this in mind, the Colonial Flavors Central Cooperative was launched in 2004 and has added value to the female image, directing efforts towards a sustainable, profitable and inclusive development.

Jaraguá do Sul, SC

With current demands from the urban market for healthy, practical and secure foods, this group is updating their structures and processes to provide fresh, sanitized horticultures, greens and vegetables — all peeled and sliced for sale as ready-to-eat salads. Moeda's support will help in deploying the Minimally Processed Agro-industry, impacting the life of at least 30 producers. The diversity of cultures will bring new sources of income, reduce crop waste, streamline sales logistics and create more autonomy in the management of family businesses.
