According to Flavio Maluf, Eucatex comes from the name eucalyptus, the raw material used by the company for making civil construction products and slabs for the furniture industry. Apart from Eucatex, Maluf owns Grandfood, a supermarket that specializes in foodstuffs. Through his experience in the two companies, Maluf has a keen eye in studying agricultural waste in Brazil as he continues to produce environmentally friendly and sustainable products. He notes that food in Brazil is wasted at an alarming rate. According to Maluf, the daily wastage of food is equivalent to three times a meal for one person daily.
Additionally, the European Union found out that 73% of the wasted food consists of beans, rice, chicken, and meat, the most expensive foods. To address this problem, FlávioMaluf is working closely with the environment ministry to educate Brazilians on food wastage. The training will primarily touch on the buying habits of the Brazilians. Additionally, they will learn about the dietary value of foods because many of them consume junk. Maluf is also working on ways to reduce the wastage of other resources like energy, water, and labor.
