To grow up. This is our nature.
Founded in 1995, Agrícola Famosa is a Brazilian company situated on the border of Rio Grande do Norte and Ceará. During its 22 years, Agrícola Famosa consolidated its name in agribusiness, characterized for investing in new technologies, for persistent researches, for respecting the environment and for its social commitment.
What initially was a desire to cultivate quality and growing fruit in the midst of the Brazilian Northeast, today had become a diversified production, constant development and the expansion of markets. Ours is a story of effort and dedication, with our almost 9.000 collaborators during the harvest period and a more than 30.000 ha of land, which makes Agrícola Famosa the biggest producer of melon and watermelon of Brazil and one of the biggest in the world.

Great Markets, Good Partnerships
