New offices for Lesaffre do Brasil, in Campinas – São Paulo
Lesaffre do Brasil has opened its new corporate offices in Campinas on the 3rd of March 2016, with the presence of Antoine Baule, CEO of Lesaffre and Jonas Donizetti, mayor of Campinas. Present in Brazil for over 25 years, the company offers innovative solutions to professionals in baking and in nutrition and health sectors. During this opening, guests had the chance to visit the new Innovation Centers.
Campinas: a strategic choice
Campinas is a strategic choice for Lesaffre do Brasil’s corporate headquarters: the city is recognized as a center of research and technology, houses various institutions, universities and companies in the food and health sector, and is near São Paulo – Brazil’s major business center – and Biospringer, Lesaffre’s yeast extracts manufacturing unit is located in Valinhos. The initiative created 38 jobs in Campinas. In Valinhos, Biospringer has 69 employees.
According to David Jousselme, general director of Lesaffre do Brasil, the country plays a strategic role in the food, biotechnology, nutrition and animal health sectors, and these installations in Campinas will allow the group to better support the growing demand in these markets. “Brazil is a strategic territory, and the company’s investments are well justified. Since Lesaffre is a privately-held and family-owned group, it has long-term vision and is investing in the country.” emphasizes David Jousselme.
Inauguration of the 4th Group Culinary Center and Baking Center™ new premises
The new headquarters, located at Avenida José Pires Neto, 190, in the Cambuí neighborhood, represents an investment of R$ 2.2 million, a large part of which was invested into its new Baking Center™ and its Culinary Center (laboratories for baking and culinary applications). These two laboratories will provide technical support to Lesaffre and Biospringer clients, respectively.
