SLC Agrícola and its suppliers
Find out what we buy and get to know our processes
The Supply Area is divided into three pillars, acquisition of production supplies (fertilizers, seeds and pesticides), construction work and infrastructure, and production purchases (machinery and implements, vehicles, supplies for harvesting and cotton processing, general shopping). SLC Agrícola centralizes its negotiations at the headquarters in Porto Alegre (RS) and at three other strategically located regional offices in the states of Mato Grosso, Bahia and Maranhão. One of the main pillars of the Supply Area is to contribute with optimization of costs in the acquisition of products and the contracting of services, keeping in line with the company’s strategies. To carry out good negotiations, SLC Agrícola has a qualified and specialized team that monitors and analyzes the trends in domestic and foreign markets, and based on this information the guidelines are outlined that allow for the best timing of purchases.
