PABCO SA is GOIASA's exclusive international agent responsible for the sale of organic cane sugar and organic cane alcohol.
Goiasa Goiatuba Alcool Ltda. in the state of Goiás (Mid-West of Brazil), began its operations in 1991 with the processing of sugar cane for ethanol production (fuel), and shortly thereafter VHP sugar as well as crystal sugar.
In 2003, Goiasa started an ambitious progressive conversion program of its 35’000ha from conventional production to organic production.
Today, besides conventional ethanol, crystal sugar and VHP sugar, Goiasa produces organic crystal sugar, organic ethyl alcohol and electric power from sugarcane bagasse.
Goiasa employs 2,500 employees making it the largest employer to the economy of the south region of the state of Goiás.
Goiasa provides for the education of its employees and their families as well as runs several other social programs for the local communities.
Goiasa is also running an active local ecological program, through reforestation and keeping the region’s rivers clean.
Goiasa is entirely self-sufficient in energy as it produces more electricity (through the sugar cane bagasse) than it consumes and its trucks run on its own ethanol.
Goiasa has a positive carbon imprint through the planting of its sugar cane and rotation crops such as organic soyabeans, in addition to an active reforestation program of 12/15'000 trees per annum.
These activities have earned Goiasa several important prizes.
