NEW BUSINESSES

From its leading position in the Argentine market, Cazenave works hard to consolidate its presence both in the region and the world.

With this in mind, the plan for the coming years includes the production of food in Brazil and in other countries of the region, as well as an important venture into the forestry business.

BRAZIL

Brazil is one of the world’s main food producers.
Taking this important factor into account, since 2007, Cazenave has been carrying out a deep process of recognition to understand the regions that offer possibilities for agricultural growth.

In line with this, the company has developed a relationship with different Brazilian agricultural companies and service providers of the sector.

Cazenave now participates in the management of agricultural companies in the west of Bahia, and it has created a project for the exploitation of land and the production of soybean and corn in the MaPiTo region (Maranhao, Piauí and Tocantins).

It will soon establish in the region in order to start managing the running projects and providing services to producers. MaPiTo’s growth potential is very high. Today it is considered to be the new agricultural frontier, after the Mato Grosso.

FORESTRY

Cazenave has a team of qualified professionals in the management of big commercial plantations in Sudamérica.
As of today’s date, the company handles more than 9,000 ha from foreign investors in Argentina, and is analyzing potential investments in other countries.

South America will have a leading role in large scale forestry investments in the coming years due to several factors: availability of large extensions of afforestable land that do not compete with agriculture; availability of technology and qualified workforce; excellent growth rates; short rotation; low production costs.

In turn, commercial wood will play an increasingly relevant role in the renewable energy field. In this way, new uses will be added to the traditional ones (the industries of construction, furniture and cellulose) that will turn this into an overdemanded good in the coming years.

Forestry projects are usually very attractive to investors who prefer to invest in low-risk assets. Also, these types of enterprises tend to be inversely correlated with the markets, turning them into financial products that are complementary to the traditional ones.
