Company Snapshot

Brothers André and Luiz have built Brazil‘s leading domestic food-production equipment manufacturer. Boasting a range of energy-efficient products — including ovens, coolers, refrigerating modules and bakery equipment — Prática now competes with large international brands for control of the Brazilian market. With a solid market presence in Brazil, the brothers continue to bring ever more high-quality jobs to their hometown of Pouso Alegre, and further fulfill their status as community role models.
