Rizoma Agro designs and implements agricultural systems that produce profitable organic crops with a positive impact on the environment. We operate our own farms and partner with growers to whom we provide know-how on production, commercialization, logistics and quality control. We are one of the biggest organic growers in Brazil and our long-term goal is to become one of the world's leading suppliers of regenerative organic ingredients.
This “market first” approach help us mitigate offtake risk to producers while helping companies succeed in new developments
With a clearly identified opportunity, we develop production technology and enablers for growth adapting our legacy knowledge to cultures and geographies
We prospect associate growers with proven backgrounds and set up partnerships to farm large-scale regenerative organic crops with low operational risk
We commercialize and deliver production with high service level, managing logistics, traceability, quality controls, certifications and impact reports
Our productive systems combine “beyond sustainable” farming practices to improve land use, rebuild soil health and restore the farmland to a condition equal to or better than its original state. Our environmental impact is measured through 3 key regenerative indicators:
Plants capture CO2 from the atmosphere and help reverse climate change. This carbon is mostly stored underground and helps create healthier and more resilient crops.
The life on our planet is connected through a food web and depends on biodiversity. From microbes in the soil all the way to jaguars in the forest, biodiversity is essential to the maintenance of landscapes, crops and ecosystem services.
Regenerative organic productive systems increases soil's water retention capacity and resilience, reducing siltation and erosive processes, also preventing the contamination of waterbodies by synthetic products.
Our company is based in São Paulo, Brazil, and our key crops are grains (corn, soy, beans, oats) and citrus, although we constantly experiment with other crops such as pulses and livestock.
Rizoma Agro is a spin-off from Fazenda da Toca, an international reference in sustainable agriculture and the largest organic eggs producer in Brazil. Since 2008 our team has been studying and developing organic farming practices and building the basis for large-scale regenerative agriculture.visit toca’s website
