In April 2021, a license agreement was signed between Koppert Cress and Champetit International in São Paulo, Brazil. According to this agreement, Champetit International will produce various types of cress (micro greens) and ‘specialties’. All these products will be offered under the brand Koppert Cress, assuring that they will be produced in accordance with the strict standards of Koppert Cress in relation to food safety (HACCP).
Since 2015 Champetit is growing high quality mushrooms at a distance of around 60 km from the heart of São Paulo, Brazil. The farm is based on modern, climate-controlled West-European technology. The first Champetit mushrooms quickly found their way to the local market where they are known for their high quality and organic quality mark. In line with their vocation to offer products with a unique food experience, Champetit established a cooperation with Koppert Cress in 2021 to produce and market various cresses to the Brazilian gastronomy.
