Founded in 2015, the platform currently has more than 350,000 registered users and operates in 21 cities in the state of São Paulo, where it is based.
Minerva noted the online retailer’s rapid growth rate, describing it as „a constant CAGR of 295% since its inception”.
It added, „Shopper is a unique opportunity that will help strengthen Minerva Foods’ digital sales channel, advance the food industry value chain and bring us closer to the end user.”
