We operate our own farms and partner with growers to whom we provide know-how on production, commercialization, logistics and quality control. We also partner with food companies to develop better products and to ensure long-term supply.
We only implement systems that sequester carbon. For example, the agroforest in which we produce citrus and timber sequesters 45 tons of CO2 per hectare per year. If our regenerative systems were implemented at a national level in Brazil, they would sequester 340 million tons of CO2 per year, equivalent to 17% of U.S. oil emissions.
We are pioneers in regenerative organic production and our story began in 2009 with Pedro Diniz’s innovative work at Fazenda da Toca. Rizoma Agro was spun-off in 2017 as an independent company to focus on scaling production and currently has more than 50 employees.
The company is based in São Paulo and our key crops are grains (corn, soy, beans, oats) and citrus (tahiti lime), but we constantly experiment with other crops (such as pulses and livestock). 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.
