“I like the impossible because there's less competition”.
The challenge was and remains very clear: Generate sustainable benefits through accurate and impactful agronomic information.
We combined our partners' great expertise and background to build up Alvaz and iniciate our business journey in 2018. As a priority, we defined our values throughout rich discussions to establish the company's MISSION, VISION and PURPOSE.
Our brand name, ALVAZ, bring together two portuguese powerful words: ALVO + VIVAZ, meaning TARGET + LIVE. As a central element, the word TARGET symbolizes our focus on work and determination on generating crucial crop information. The word LIVE is then added to ensure fluidity and pass by the message of vigor and life, concepts linked to agriculture.
Alvaz branding and visual communication reflect these same premises. Our logo is designed to symbolize a target and the colors, green and blue, were choosen to link to the concept of nature, its forces and the inexhaustible resources of agriculture.
In a short period of time, we have attained important achievements through knowledge and technological innovation. We are confident and fully adherent to our values in pursuit of our corporate vision.
Our corporate structure is built by agronomists with extensive technical and business experience - which includes genetic improvement, seeds, technologies and crop protection products development.
Our leaders acquired experience over many years of work in the most relevant agricultural regions in Brazil and numerous interactions with farmers, researchers, co-operatives, distributors and consultants.
This solid and pratical coexistence with people ”on the field” allowed us to really understand what are the most urgent demands coming from the farm.
