The history of Interfruit

Interfruit was established in 1996 by the Caldara family, in Linhares – in the northern part of Espírito Santo state – focused on producing papaya. In a short time, its dedication to fruit quality, management processes, and production and crop management techniques led to expressive results and the distribution to the national market.

For more than 25 years, it has produced and delivered papaya to Brazil and several other countries, in accordance with international regulation and up to par with high standards of markets such as the European , North and South America and Middle Eastern.

The first exports were in 1999, with monthly shipments of 20 tons of papaya to 4 European countries. Careful production methods and attention to market demands soon led to the opening of new markets.

In 2002, its new headquarters were opened, at BR 101 – an important distribution route – with over 18,000 square meters, more than enough space to supply the demand and grow as per the partners plans. In 2007 the investment in the Baraúna region, in Rio Grande do Norte, was made focused on production and packaging of the Formosa variety.
