I have been told, not long ago, that two companies expect to reopen some plants in Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Goiás. These are very important movements.”
Maggi also highlighted the actions of the MAPA regarding the foreign trade, and praised the union of the cooperatives Frísia, Castrolanda and Capal, that gave rise to the Alegra brand.
