Tio João rice is produced by Josapar, one of the ten largest food companies in the country, which benefits more than 486 thousand tons of grain per year. The history of the company began in the first decades of the twentieth century, when Joaquim Oliveira arrived in the city of Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul in 1911. Having an entrepreneurial spirit and a singular beacon for business, Joaquim saw in the city that he received the opportunity of his life. And it was not for less! For more than 90 years in the market, Josapar has solidified not only the quality of its products, but the commitment to the customer. Its products are distributed throughout Brazil and in more than 40 countries in North America, Asia, Africa and Europe.
