Find out how it all started
It was founded in 1986, Indústria Ervateira Bonetes Ltda was settled in Planalto Norte Catarinense with the aim of industrializing “in natura” mate herb.
It chose the locality of Bonetes, in the countryside city of Canoinhas, to begin its activity of trade and extraction of the raw material generally acquired of small farmers of the region that had in this product a valuable source of income. The acquired “in natura” mate herb was extracted from herbs in the dense forests existing throughout this region and transported to the company where it was processed to obtain the masked mate herb. This final product was marketed with herbs located in Rio Grande do Sul where this product was transformed into mate herb for “chimarrão”.
With constant growth in business, in 1995 its managers noted the need to increase its manufacturing plant in order to meet the needs of production and also to industrialize the fine product to trade the mate already packaged with own brand in wholesale and retails in the states Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Paraná. The owners then acquired the company known as Irmãos Folle located in SC 477 road, urban perimeter of the municipality of Canoinhas with 10,000 meters of built area.
