THE PLANTING PEPPERS OUR OBJECTIVE
The purpose of our project and do an agribusiness with various products highly commercialized in the world. We will have as our main product marketing peppers sauce and pickled peppers. The company to be formed will have the responsibility to make the plantations, manufacturing, distribution and sales of organic sauces peppers, handmade and decorated.
PLANTATIONS – Seeds are selected with world-class quality. Peppers will have more spicy and mild flavors. They will be consumed in Brazil and abroad. The planting will be in northeastern soil excellent appropriate and favorable condition for a successful development of production. The soil is very fertile for being free of any cultivation for decades due to lack of rain.
CROPS – With the lack of opportunities and poor job creation, we are generating financial revenues in crops of peppers, contributing to the growth and socioeconomic development of the region. We will be forming a social and economic program of great importance self-sustaining.
The peppers, we adopted like cultivation flagship of our project. They adapt very well to the semi -arid climate. Its has a demand and good acceptance in domestic and foreign trade. We had wonderful experiences in peppers growing in the northeastern where the weather and totally favorable production can be done on a large scale.
Pepper Kingdom or black pepper and the most popular spice in the world is native to India and has been used since ancient times. It was so valued were often used as a form of currency and was sometimes called ” black gold.” It was also used medicinally.
The plant begins to produce and only the third to fifth year of cultivation, and may thereafter produce two crops per year in suitable climates, for up to twenty years. The fruits are harvested in accordance with the type of pepper to be obtained.
According to IBGE, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, in 2012 the Brazilian production of black pepper kingdom was 43,000 tons in 19,400 ha, standing out as producing the states of Pará , Espírito Santo and Bahia, responsible by 75 %, 15 % and 9 % of national production respectively.
Being a product marketed in the international market (commodity) in years favorable price culture offers high profitability even in small crops, with an excellent diversification option for producers. To confirm this fact, is quoted in only 2,400 ha planted with the crop in the state of Espírito Santo, black pepper kingdom has been consolidated as the third export product of the state agribusiness, and in the first half of 2014 the exports have reached US $ 38.4 million.
It is a medical food. One study also found that black pepper and saffron consumed together in a normal amounts, was able to destroy the stem cells of breast cancer. These cells are much hard to be destroyed with chemotherapy.
Black pepper helps the digestive system:
pepper prevents water retention :
pepper help to stop smoking :
pepper is a United Anti- Bacterial Agent :
Our project believes in the dream to transform our reservation in northeastern backlands in a lush place of great admiration and pride not only for the Brazil, for example over several locations under similar conditions anywhere in the world. We want to win barrier and naturally adapted native plants of other adverse regions to our reality.
The Olive tree and other crops will be our challenge. As in other countries, Brazil is also increasing the number of people who are worrying more about the health to ensure physical and mental well -being. Many Brazilians are prioritizing a balanced diet, giving preference to the consumer products with more beneficial properties to health.
Used by man for thousands of years, the olive tree had its commercial planting started here in the nineteenth century and became the target of Brazilian research from 1948 in Rio Grande do Sul. Only seven decades later, in 2008, the first extraction occurred genuinely national oil when the Agricultural Research Company of Minas Gerais (Epamig) and Embrapa Temperate Climate started to bottle the product, rich in unsaturated fatty acids, which are beneficial to increase levels of HDL, the good cholesterol.
The promising national oil consumption is stimulating for new entrepreneurs of the field. The market still needs to grow a lot to be able to supply our domestic market. Currently we need to resort to import because we do not have a Brazilian production enough to our domestic market. Brazil is in the top positions of major oil buyer on the planet.
From the third year of planting, with a full load in the seventh year. However, lack of irrigation or interference from other factors can delay fruiting for several years. Mature olive trees become black with soft and buttery flavor. There oils, however, are made from the blend of black and green olives spicy flavor, which are harvested during the color change.
With international help and techniques used previously in similar conditions to our climate and soil in another country, we believe we have a promising production. The olive oil is a genuine product of great demand in the domestic market. Idealize our products will be produced with high quality standards.
The civilized world has known the existence of cocoa and chocolate after Christopher Columbus discovered America. Until then, they were the privilege of the Indians who lived in southern Mexico, Central America and the Amazon basin, where cocoa was developed naturally through the forest. Today, almost five centuries later, cocoa products are consumed in many ways, in almost all countries, and are part of the life of modern man.

Its history surrounded by legend is marked by curious episodes, it was used by the Aztecs as currency and for a long time it was a unique beverage of the most sumptuous courts of Europe. Its seeds taken to other regions and continents, formed large plantations that today an important source of employment and income for millions of people.
In addition to its flavor and exceptional quality. The fat used in the manufacture of food products with milk chocolate. Consistencies and different flavors there are many ways important for marketing cocoa sales to be professionally exploited by producers.
The first is the ecological appeal, attributed to the fact that the cacao growing a crop maintainer of environmental balance, to demand the preservation of native forest to its shading favoring its adaptation to the fragile ecosystems of the humid tropics Brazil is 5 ° cocoa producer in the world next to the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon.
Your marketing is a leader anywhere in the world.
It is a popular fruit in northern and northeastern regions of the country, only in recent years has become more known among Brazilian states of Central South. Family Annonaceae, the same as the Earl of fruit, cherimoya, the biribá, among others, the soursop (Annona muricata L.) was brought here by the Portuguese in the fourteenth century, although it should be given to the Spanish explorers credit for dissemination of the plant by the tropical areas of the planet.
Its origin, however, is Central America and Peruvian valleys, especially the production of Venezuela, the highest among the countries of South America. Here, in the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Pernambuco and Pará stand in traditional farming, and the western state of São Paulo as an area that is gaining more space in the planting of soursop in the last decade.
The fruit has an oval shape, with the peel in dark green and covered with “thorns”. The inner part is formed by a white pulp with slightly sweet taste and a slightly acid being used in the preparation of vitamins and desserts. Its scientific name is Annona muricata L. and can be purchased in markets and natural food stores.

The Acai berry is a raw material for the manufacture of ice cream, ice lollies, jellies, drinks and energy foods. The açaí fruits all year, especially between July and December, during which the production is intensified.
The producer can control the açai plantation so that they bear fruit intensely also in the first half of the year. In the off season, the fruits are more valued in the market, providing a good profit margin to producers during the marketing.
In recent years the acai consumption increased steeply not only in the North, but in Brazil and in several countries in Europe and the United States. At present the Brazilian production of açaí meets precariously demand of domestic and foreign markets. Due to high demand and low domestic production.
This high demand for fruit açaí has served as an incentive for some local investors start planting in small, medium and large scale. In the current context of increasing consumption, the return on investments made in acai plantations is almost certain given that the Brazilian production potential market.
The northeast of Brazil and responsible for high consumption of acai to be a food very energetic and beneficial to health. It´s has the wonderful properties, preventing disease and leaving the body healthy and with a lot more energy.
