Think Plastic Brazil and Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce collaborate to host B2B virtual meetings for converted plastic products


August 16, 2021 - Brazil-based converted plastic product manufacturers are set to showcase their sustainable construction, home essential products, bathroom fittings, office supplies, cleaning products, toys, chairs, showerheads, pipes, faucets, cutlery and many more to Arab companies in a series of B2B virtual meetings from September 20 until October 7, 2021.


The event will be hosted by Think Plastic Brazil, a global initiative launched by the country’s National Plastic Institute (INP) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex Brasil), in collaboration with the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce (ABCC).


At least 15 companies will highlight their products made from recycled plastic including bathroom fittings, cleaning products, pharmaceutical packaging, toys, chairs, cables, paint rollers, and more. Arab retailers and distributors have until September 16 to register for the virtual meetings.


Osmar Chohfi, President, Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are proud to collaborate with Think Plastic Brazil in hosting the B2B virtual meetings. Our teams have been working together since last year, and we are looking forward to introducing more eco-friendly products to the Arab market. With this initiative, we aim to raise awareness regarding various applications of reusable plastics as we continue to boost trade relations between Brazil and the Arab world. We look forward to the event's success and more trade opportunities in the future."


An increasing number of companies and communities are backing the use and manufacturing of recyclable plastic around the world. From January to May 2021, Think Plastic Brazil led an initiative that enabled member companies to expand to 57 new markets and 17 new products, boosting their export revenue to USD 136.5 million, a 20 per cent increase compared to the same period last year. This also reflects an increase in volume by 4 per cent, which is equivalent to 54,900 tons.
