The incentive to agribusiness is an important chapter in Bradesco’s history. The bank’s support to the sector comes from a long date, as well as the entrepreneurial spirit of various productive sectors of the country.

This history is being built since 1943, when Bradesco was founded. Together also came the decision to narrow the relations with farmers that, at that time, were already part of Brazil’s main economic force.

Not by chance, to the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Bank was supporting and following the strengthening of the coffee culture as economic pillar and opened in northern Paraná the first branches outside of São Paulo.

Today, in Brazil which is present throughout the world, agribusiness assumes the role of protagonist, international reference of quality and efficiency. And Bradesco is proud of being part of this history.
