Grupo Los Grobo is the result of a long tradition in agriculture and farming in Latin America.
Our group of companies has been working and investing in the fertile farmlands of South America for generations.
Although each of our companies started its business in a different place: Ceagro in Brazil, Los Grobo, Molinos Los Grobo and UPJ in Argentina, adp in Uruguay, we share the same passion that transcends generations, nationalities and borders: farming and food production.
On the other hand, this geographical diversification allowed us to adapt crop production and agribusiness management to the most suitable context, which in the end gave us risk management expertise.
Los Grobo Agropecuaria was founded in 1984 by Argentine entrepreneur Adolfo Grobocopatel. In the 1990’s they were pioneers in organizing its network by dividing its activities into three major business areas: agricultural production, imputs and services sale. In 2001, it became the first agribusiness company in the world to be certified under ISO 9001 standards.
Ceagro was founded in 1995 in Brazil to provide its clients with a new set of agribusiness services. Soy, millet, inputs and fertilizers are some of the products we sell, both to domestic and foreign markets.
In 2001, the group of companies added an industrial division to its products and services portfolio by establishing Los Grobo Inversora in Bahía Blanca, Argentina as well as the network of mills that comprises Molinos Canepa (Chivilcoy) and Rosario de Tala (Entre Rios), Moliendas Argentinas (Angasil - Sao Pablo) and a flour producer and distributor in Brazil Los Grobo Agroindustrial do Brasil.
As from 2003, the company strengthened its internationalization process by reinforcing its presence in Brazil and Uruguay. From 2005 onwards it initiated a thorough growth so impressive that it was subject of study by the world’s leading universities, including Harvard.
