Brazilian Owned & Operated

Incobrasa has a long history in agriculture, with expertise in the soybean industry. Privately owned and operated, our business efforts expanded from Brazil to the United States in 1982.


Our Company

We have over 50 years of experience in soybean crushing and oil extraction.  We are a leader in the production of top quality oilseed products and biodiesel fuel.  Our longevity in the marketplace and continued success are attributed to extensive experience, hard work and a commitment to excellence.


Our company began in Brazil as a producer and processor of soybeans.  We have held interest in the soybean industry and farmland in the United States since 1982.

In 1995, we recognized an opportunity to apply our experience and expand our operations in the United States by creating a soybean processing plant in Gilman Illinois.  Our crushing facility became operational in the Fall of 1997.

Since then, our site has grown to include an oil refinery, a packaging facility for food grade vegetable oil in 2004 and a state-of-the-art biodiesel production plant in 2007.  Our vision and focus is to continue to be adaptive to our industry trends and always evaluate opportunities for improvement and growth.

Vision & Foundation

With a wealth of knowledge and many years of experience, Dr. Renato Ribeiro began investing in farmland real estate in Central Illinois in the early 1980s.  As a self-made entrepreneur in Brazil, he had owned various businesses, including a soybean processing plant.  He and his family expanded to the United States with the vision of a new soybean processing facility.  At the base of that vision were important factors such as strategic logistical location, vertical integration and opportunity for expansion.  The company was founded on core values of intelligence, quality and integrity, which were instilled by Dr. Ribeiro.  With his vision and the foundation he established, we have become the world class company that you see today.
