Who we are

Evolving consistently and continuously, AMAGGI was born as a Brazilian family business and is also today present in China, Argentina, Paraguay, Holland, Norway and Switzerland.

The first AMAGGI unit, Sementes Maggi, was inaugurated in 1977 in the city of São Miguel do Iguaçu, in the state of Paraná. Two years later, in 1979, activities began in Mato Grosso, with the acquisition of a farm in the municipality of Itiquira.

Since then, the company has expanded its business units and areas, expanding its operations in Brazil and abroad. Headquartered in Cuiabá (MT), it is currently the largest Brazilian company in the country's grain and fiber chain and is also present in China, Argentina, Paraguay, Holland, Norway and Switzerland.

In addition, since 1997 it has contributed to local and human development in the communities where it operates, placing itself as a partner in the sustainable development of these locations through the André and Lucia Maggi Foundation.
