the industry


Agrária’s flour mill was the Cooperative’s first industrial unit to add value to farm production. Set up in 1953, the mill’s first aim was to supply the cooperative members’ families for their own consumption. With the expansions effected in the course of decades, the industry today has the capacity to produce 150,000 tons per year.

Structure and production

The products of Agrária Farinhas (Agrária Flours) are manufactured in one of the most modern flour mills in Brazil. Modern equipment and advanced technology, together with strict control of raw materials, combine to ensure quality in production. In addition to supplying the domestic market,

Agrária Farinhas is one of Brazil’s most important suppliers of wheat flour for industrial use, in the bread, biscuit and pasta segments. In order to meet the needs of customers and partners, the plant has a grinding chart for whole-grain and special flours, producing flours with several different particle sizes.

Research and Market

In order to invest in the quality of raw materials, Agrária Farinhas works hand-in-hand with FAPA (Agrária Foundation for Agricultural Research). By means of trials and analyses, the research leads to technical recommendations specifically directed to wheat production, besides making available new varieties that will meet the technical requirements of Agrária Farinhas’ customers.  

Agrária Farinhas started producing flour for biscuits in the year 1995. Since then, it has developed work with FAPA (Agrária Foundation for Agricultural Research) in order to improve and select wheat cultivars to meet the needs of industries in this sector.

At present, 70% of the wheat cultivated by Agrária’s cooperative members is of the soft type, especially suitable for the production of flour for biscuits.

In addition, Agrária Farinhas is adapting its milling plant for the production of specific flours, with analyses that are more focused on biscuit production and complying with health requirements. As a result, the mill has been recommended for the FSSC 22000 certification.

The Agrária flour mill was the first
in Latin America to receive the ISO 22000
certification for Food Safety Management.
