Our Company

where we started in Sao Paulo

Agarex was first opened in Brazil as a general agricultural trading company.  The business consisted of marketing and sales of locally grown food products for distribution in Brazil. We worked closely with local growers and the Growers associations to assist in marketing to the large food chain stores. We also worked closely with the local university to create marketing and production plans for small to medium sized producers.

Eventually the company focused on mushrooms and expanded into export of mushrooms and mushroom products to various international markets such as Japan, South Korea, Europe and the United States.

In 2001 the company opened offices in the United States to better facilitate global shipments.

Currently, Agarex operates various businesses through its subsidiaries. The focus of the company has always been import and export but we also expanded into baby and children’s products, furniture, foods, nutritional supplements and drinks. We also specialize in e-commerce operations in the United States as well as South Korea.
