We actively participate in various fairs, and this one in particular is a great opportunity to establish new connections with professionals in the sector.”

Bio Abundance Program
During the event, Concepta Ingredients will also present the Bio Abundance Program, which reinforces its commitment to Brazilian forests. The initiative is based on five pillars: connecting people in a virtuous chain of value between the wealth of the forest and the market; conserving the standing forest; respecting the peoples and communities that inhabit it; encouraging the use of ingredients from Brazilian biomes; and promoting socio-economic inclusion and reducing social inequality. The Bio Abundance Program contributes to the indirect maintenance of 578,000 hectares of native vegetation, spread across the Amazon, Cerrado, Caatinga and Atlantic Forest biomes, and involves around 6,000 families.
