Brazilian potato processor Bem Brasil Alimentos starts 2021 with a new president: Dênio de Oliveira, who has held the position of chief financial officer since 2019.
He succeeds the founder of the company, João Emílio Rocheto, who now serves on the Board of Shareholders, along with the other partners and members.
The challenge, among others, will be to lead the company's expansion process, already underway, with a view to doubling the current production of frozen pre-fried potatoes and expanding its leadership in the domestic market.
Bem Brasil's transition process is underway since 2019, when it became a public company (S.A.) and started to emphasize the implementation of Compliance actions and practices, transparency and equity in decision making.
Now the company expands this movement to professionalization of the management, with the choice of a CEO of the market, with vast experience and knowledge of the company.
