Strategic Position

GRI 1.2

Odebrecht Agroindustrial constantly invests in perfecting its management and operating processes, without losing focus on people and on the sustainable development of business. These are the fundamentals for remaining competitive on the road to attaining short, medium and long-term goals.

To stay competitive in its markets, the company bases its actions on the values and concepts of the Odebrecht Entrepreneurial Technology (TEO), a set of principles reflecting the culture of the Odebrecht Organization and serving as a basis for entrepreneurship. During the 2012-2013 crop year, aspects such as innovation and sustainability were even more to the fore in planning and developing business.

To achieve sustainable growth, the company has a synergistic and well-qualified team, where each member assumes responsibility for the business. To make this possible, the company invests constantly in training and qualifying its members and its leaders. This way the company expresses its belief in the construction of a business that translates into benefits for those involved and for the general public.

Internationalization

The company has been seeking opportunities to expand its business to other countries. It has therefore undertaken feasibility studies for projects in countries such as Peru and Colombia, with Venezuela and Mexico still at the evaluation stage.

In this context, the United States also represents a major opportunity for business growth, whether by exporting to the local market from Brazil or from another neighboring country, or by opening offices there. Studies are currently under way to find out more about doing business there.

It is also worth highlighting the sharing of experiences with Bioko – Bioenergy Company of Angola, an agroindustrial unit for milling sugarcane and producing sugar, electricity and ethanol, fruit of a partnership between Odebrecht Infraestrutura and the Angolan Entrepreneurial Group. Some members of Odebrecht Agroindustrial have been seconded to help with the implementation of the project in Angola.
