Granja Mantiqueira (Mantiqueira Farm) is in the Factory-farming sector in South America. The business was started in the late 80’s, in the city of Itanhandu (MG), by businessman Leandro Pinto, with just 30 thousand chickens.
Mantiqueira has set high standard in the Brazilian poultry industry, bringing to Brazil innovation which already existed in Europe. Currently, the farm has one thousand nine hundred employees and all its processes are automated. From the moment the egg is laid by the chicken, until when it arrives in the gondolas on the markets, the product is not touched by human hands.
In the year 2000, Carlos Cunha, former owner of a supermarket chain with a strong retail tradition, became a member of Mantiqueira, which influenced the growth of the company, as well as the opening up to new markets.
