Origins and Evolution
History, values and entrepreneurship
From its origins, more than half a century ago as an individual project, until today as a group of companies involved in activities related to agribusiness, the same energy and values spurred the company to travel different business cycles, adapt to changes and build a long term project with strong foundations.
1933 | Hilario J. Gaviglio parents decide to leave the farm and settle in the community of ZenónPereyra, where they establish a general store. Hilario begins working in business at the age of 13.
1950 | Hilario starts his way independently and forms the basis of our company, originating and commercializing the grain of farmers in the region, counting as work tools with a sampler for bulk grains, two rented sheds and an automobile "Ford-A".
1960 | A period of strong growth for the company begins. Commercial activity intensifies by the incorporation of commercial offices, grain storage facilities and deposits of agricultural inputs as well. Agricultural and livestock production businesses had a strong development through the acquisition of various farm lands along the region. Also we ventured into the seed processing and the manufacture of products for animal nutrition. The company is led by its founder and two of his offspring.
2008 | Establishment of a strategic plan aimed to position the company as a leader and to prepare it for a new wave of development. Businesses grow significantly and the organization is professionalized steadily by formalizing processes and policies, and by incorporating non-family members to the management team. New challenges are underway.
