Profile

Blazquez SRL is a family-run business situated in the Province of Tucuman, Republic of Argentina. It was founded in 1938. In 1963, when the father of Ana María and Amelia Melquiades Blázquez died, his daughters decided to continue his agricultural activities and they are still running the company.
Blazquez SRL originally exclusively produced sugarcane. However, in 1980, they started diversifying their business, investing in citrus, and later they also cultivated blueberries (2003). Since 2010, after acquiring a field in the north of the province, they started developing the livestock sector.
