We are made of people.

More than

And more than

Lar. Built by the sum of each one of us.

We are the cooperative that employs the most people in Brazil and we take this strength to the world.

Our chicken cuts are allowed to reach over 75 countries across America, Europe, Asia, including Arab countries. In the agricultural area, we bring safety to the countryside with quality raw materials and technical assistance, and strength for commercializing the agricultural production of our members in Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Mato Grosso do Sul. We have been excelling our quality standard for over half a century, always prioritizing ethics in human relations and business innovation.

Our history

When everything started

In 1964, 55 small farmers from Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina got together in the former Gleba dos Bispos, where the city of Missal (Paraná) is currently located, to cultivate the land, raise animals, manage wood, and sell inputs. Thanks to their search for professionalism and vision of the future, the group was restructured in a process that resulted in agro-industrialization, in the 1990s, and in an integrated management, based since 2017 on three jurisdictions: Financial Administration, Agricultural Business, and Food and Supplies.

With continuous improvement, collegiate decisions, qualified leadership, and strong management and fiscal councils, Lar has continued to make history, expanding its business and registering growth year after year. In 2019, the cooperative had a BRL 7-billion revenue.

Innovation and continuous learning are part of Lar Cooperative’s values!

Innovation initiatives are used in our processes, products, and services. We have an Innovation Program with six areas of activity meant to Lar and its members, which aims to communicate and engage our employees, members, and partners. We believe innovation is the continuous search for solutions, development and improvement of our products, the search for cost reduction and process improvements in order to generate perceived value to our customers, employees, and members. Lar’s culture is to encourage the generation and accept new ideas, creating opportunities for improving processes and the work environment.


For the environment, society, and the future of business.

Lar Agro-industrial Cooperative established Lar Environmental Priority Program as a strategy to identify opportunities and also to adopt practices that aim to promote environmental awareness and responsibility, acting in its processes with society.

This program defines indicators with annual objectives for the sustainable development of Lar’s activities, in line with the company’s strategy.
