Brazil: the first Olympic medal goes to Pasticcino!

Yesterday at the Spartaco Business Park the ultimate dream of Gonzalo Perrin was realized: the opening of "Pasticcino Brazil".

160804 Polo Spartaco PasticcinoTake a look at the photos that arrived through Facebook and whatsapp last night - they speak of a dream come true! "Pasticcino Brazil" was opened yesterday by Gonzalo Perrin and its future manager Flavio Pires Toledo. It will supply the Brazilian market, and produce the famous biscuits to go with coffee which has become a great hit with Starbucks - as our readers have already been informed.  In fact, those who follow us already know the young Argentinean entrepreneur Gonzalo Perrin and the story of his company Pasticcino.

Carolina Carbonell from Argentina wrote this to us tonight: "I thought about how many times Flavio Pires Toledo and Gonzalo Perrín have crossed the borders trying to realize a dream: "economically incorrect entrepreneurs", in search of communion. It's great to see them happy today. Although the Rio Olympics will start only tomorrow, today Pasticcino has won the first gold medal in Brazil."

Curitiba: Inauguration of the B.Raizes EoC Company

"Here is another stone of that cathedral that we are building in the world." Roseli and Armando Tortelli felt expressed with these words of Alberto Ferrucci, who were present at the inauguration of B. Raizes, last October 8 in Curitiba.

born again from the "roots"

by Roseli Tortelli

111008_Curitiba_B.Raizes3There was an atmosphere of family and of great joy for this new stage of a company that has a history of over eight years. The name of this company, "B. Raizes" has a deep significance and is fully linked to what the Economy of Communion suggests. The "B" commits to what John Paul II said, calling us to "respond to Evil with Good, with a capital G." Raizes (= roots) instead is a response to what Chiara said on the EoC that has "the roots in Heaven." 

A hundred people came by during the course of the day.

A little history: During an EoC Congress in 2003, Claudete Bortoleto Cieslinski felt a strong desire to respond to the EoC project. She herself tells us: "I asked that Ginetta to give me a hand from heaven, because I did not have the means to start a business. She had taught us to believe in divine providence, and with this faith, I went ahead."
