Profil

Together, Maniagro SA, responsible for primary production, and Arg De Graaf SA, responsible for the industrialization of peanuts, make up Maniagro Argentina, a company dedicated to the production, selection and export of peanuts. The acquisition of a peanut plant in early 2009 allowed the company to develop the entire chain of production, and thus achieve vertical integration ensuring the traceability of the product from seed development until the arrival of peanuts at each destination port. The extensive experience in agricultural production of the president of Maniagro Argentina, Jorge Daniel Cavigliasso, establishes a strong imprint based on the value of human labor, caring for soil sustainability and preservation of natural resources, and contributing to the excellent quality and performance of the products offered.
