Brazil’s APAS 2015 is the largest retail and supermarket industry show held in Brazil. Naturally, there were several confectionery exhibitors at the event, displaying new product launches and reconnecting with past customers.
Raimundo Mororó, a retired researcher from the Executive Committee of the Cocoa Farming Planning (Ceplac), built a chocolate processing facility on Farm Riachuelo near Ilheaus, Brazil. There he produces chocolates using cocoa beans harvested from the farm and marketed under the Mendoá name. The company most recently exhibited its product line at the Salon du Chocolat in Paris last year.
