DARTON GROUP has invested time to enhance our knowledge of Brazil.  And so should you.


The Brazilian economy (15th largest in the world) has been on fire (in a good way!).  And Brazil is continuing to take actions to seize business opportunities in the USA with the Southeast being a focus geography.

The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Georgia (BACC-GA) recently announced plans to establish chapters in Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi and Tennessee.  The organization is in the process of changing its name to Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Southeast, Inc. to better reflect the territory it will serve.

As provided to DARTON by BACC-GA officials, “The BACC-GA’s mission is to be the key facilitator for Southeastern U.S. companies seeking business expansion in Brazil and the main clearing house for Brazilian firms looking for business opportunities in this region. In addition, the BACC-GA aims at providing a strong link between the American and Brazilian business communities in the Southeast, serving as a key vehicle of communication, cooperation and development between the two”.

Some quick factoids on the impact of Brazil in Charlotte:

  • Some have estimated the Brazilian population in the greater Charlotte area at 5,000 persons.
  • The Brasil Carolinas Club has served as a local networking source and connector in Charlotte.
  • Springs Global, the well known textiles company in Fort Mill, SC and maker of  SPRINGMAID and WAMSUTTA brands, is a subsidiary of Springs Global Participacoes SA, a company based in Montes Claros, Brazil.
  • There is a growing number of restaurants (e.g. Chima Brazilian Steakhouse) and other establishments serving the Brazilian community in greater Charlotte.  Read more at Brazilian Businesses in Charlotte.
