AFTER three months of inactivity, the Brasfrigo vegetable canning plant in Luziânia, Brazil, restarted production under the management of new owner, Goiás Verde, on 17 October. Vladimir Pekic writes: Goiás Verde president Paulo Boni said the Brasfrigo plant resumed production of tomato pulp, which requires just a few employees. “Eventually, we will start producing other products from Brasfrigo’s portfolio,” he added. Tomato and canned vegetables producer Goiás Verde expects to double production with its newly-acquired capacity. “We account for 18% of the national [canned] maize and tomato production,” said Boni. Goiás Verde sales could reach BRL700 million (USD343.99 million) this year.
