Sustainable from origin to the final destination
Track your bale
We are the largest genuinely Brazilian company in the production and commercialization of grains and fibers, we contribute to the socio-economic development of the regions where we operate, and we offer, on a global scale, innovative and sustainable products and solutions, acting as the third largest cotton producer in the world.
We are always attentive to what the consumer society demands from the market and we realize that there is a consolidated concern with the origin of products, whatever those may be. Consequently, we developed the ACTS – AMAGGI Cotton Traceability and Sustainability Program.
The ACTS is a program that guarantees the responsible and sustainable origin of all cotton produced by AMAGGI. It identifies the entire chain involved in the production and processing of the fiber, in response to the consumer need to know where the product comes from and who exactly produced it.
From a QR Code found on the cotton bales, it is possible to track various information about the origin of the product. Traceability identifies, from the day of planting, the plot, the variety planted, all harvest data and processing.
In addition to traceability, through the ACTS, the client knows details of the farm where that cotton was planted, such as the native forest preservation area, the good agricultural practices adopted, the infrastructure offered to employees who live at the farm, and the life stories of those who are in contact with our cotton daily.
At AMAGGI, the cotton cultivation and processing as a second crop, right after the main harvest, made it even more possible to develop talents and guarantee permanent employment, stability and income throughout the year, thus ending the rotation and seasonality problems.
Moreover, cotton has allowed the region to develop, due to the presence of the cotton ginning industry, benefiting the entire local economy. Also, AMAGGI trains youngsters to work in several areas through the ‘Jovens Talentos’ Program (Young Talents). In addition to the internship program, the company is always offering courses and trainings to all the employees.
