Elements Brazil started at the beginning of 2017 acting as an intermediary between Canadian companies and suppliers in Brazil. At first, we intermediated “Bananada” (dry bananas) operation of which we became partners and opened more than 600 stores with this product in Canada, then expanding to the USA. We then sold our stake in this company and started to focus on product variety, taking advantage of the expertise acquired. Today in addition to our exclusive brands that operate in the Canadian market, we work with a line of more than 400 different products to serve the Canadians and in special the Brazilian community (cookies, flour, rice, beans ... etc).
When immigrants leave their country, they go through a series of adaptations and one of the most difficult things to adapt to is different food. For this reason, there’s nothing better than having access to food that ‘takes you back’ home, to your childhood memories, with your family and friends.
elements was founded having this mix of feelings in mind, aiming to bring good memories and to gather good friends.
elements was created not only to serve the ethnic market but also to present new natural flavors and trends in the food sector in a multicultural country like Canada.
