CJ Selecta!

Since 1984, CJ Selecta has pioneered the manufacture of soy products for different segments. Headquartered in Uberlândia (MG), an industrial unit in Araguari (MG), a commercial office in São Paulo (SP) and several branches throughout Brazil, the company is today one of the largest exporters of Soy Protein Concentrate (SPC, in the acronym in English soy protein concentrate), with sources of transgenic and non-transgenic soy.

With 38 years in the market, in 2017 the company underwent a major transformation after having its operational control acquired by the South Korean group CJ CheilJedang. Until then known as Sementes Selecta, the company changes its name to CJ Selecta, becoming part of one of the largest conglomerates in the world in food, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, entertainment, media, home shopping and logistics.

Today, the company is part of the CJ Bio Division, a global leader in bioscience based on the development of products that meet customer needs based on sustainable biotechnology. With focus on offering environmentally friendly solutions, for the past 50 years the company has been working on the development of cutting edge technologies for microorganisms, becoming a reference in the market for food amino acids and fermented nucleotides for food.

President's word

CJ Selecta produces ingredients that are manufactured from the soy crushing process. These high quality ingredients are used in different industries, from human and animal food.

When processing soybeans, we first obtain Soy Oil, which is marketed with the main manufacturers of cooking oil, in addition to margarine and mayonnaise. Our oil is recognized as ‘’ Standard A ’’, by the main brands sold in the country, and we are present in its day-to-day, in various products and brands.

We also produce SPC, which is a Soy Protein Concentrate, used in several applications for the production of animal feed, such as fish, salmon mainly, pigs, pets, poultry and even cattle. Today, Selecta is the world's largest producer of this ingredient. Here is a highlight: this concentrate, today, is also the main ingredient of salmon ration in the world. So, if you eat a salmon here in Brazil, or even in other parts of the world, most likely it was fed by CJ Selecta's SPC.

I also want to highlight here, soy lecithin, which we produce and deliver to the biggest chocolate brands in Brazil and Europe.

In addition, we have a new area within CJ Selecta, which is the production of Organic Fertilizers, which are made from soy ingredients to serve Brazilian agriculture, bringing innovation, technology and sustainability to different cultures, such as soy, corn, coffee, cane, among many others in Brazil.

We have high quality products, produced with strict controls and that serve customers in Brazil and abroad, with a focus on ethics, innovation and sustainability.

And that is why I always say: I am proud to be part of this Cj Selecta team. Thank you!
