Currently with over 2 thousand associates, the history of Capal grows as more people become a part of it. IT all begins with the arrival of Dutch families to the countryside of Paraná in the 60’s. The town of Arapoti would become a new nation for those seeking to make a living out of the earth. In this soil they have found, more than prosperity, a fertile landscape for the implementation of a managing model that would become reference within the country. With a profile turned towards cooperativism, Capal has built its legacy in the milk industry, focusing on Dutch livestock. With the expansion of its activities on the 70’s, agiculture, dairy farming and pig farming have also conquered even more space in its history.
