TerraProjectos Azores is a consulting company for the agri-food, rural and tourism sectors that was born on October 8th 2015 from the will, the vision and the commitment of its two founders, António Simas, agro-industrial engineer, and João Pereira, agronomic engineer, two friends whose paths crossed during college at the Higher Institute of Agronomy (ISA), in Lisbon. Destiny wanted them to meet again and it was the pineapple from Azores that led to that reencounter. This project was born from the know-how of TerraProjectos — Agri-Food Consulting, Marketing and Desing, a company present in the market since 1999.
MISSION | VISION
To develop solid projects that strengthen Azores’ agri-food, rural and touristic potential, always believing it is possible to participate, today and tomorrow, in building the future.
João Pereira is TerraProjectos’ executive director, for whom working with the Azorean agri-food sector has been a real challenge throughout the years. «We have been discovering the islands’ people and flavours, getting to know them and being involved with each island. We believe we have been able to develop, besides projects, bonds and visions with those with whom our paths have crossed», he refers with enthusiasm.
António Simas is the Azorean face to the company. Since 1999, he has been developing his
professional activity in Azores, among pineapple, banana and passion fruit production, in the
areas of production, quality, environment, hygiene and food safety.
