SETA is a company linked to environmental issues through the production of vegetable tannins and wood chips. The company is aligned with rigorous standards of social, environmental and economic responsibility.

SETA believes that sustainability is a set of actions that, for the most part, are intangible and imperceptible to our eyes, but of utmost importance for the maintenance of the environment, society and business.

History from 1941

SETA was the first vegetable tannin industry in the American continent and was composed of tanners, led by Mr. Edvino Leuck.

The company was born to meet the demand for vegetable tannins from local tanneries, but also began to serve the domestic market and quickly the international market.

As a result, in addition to expanding the cultivation of Black Acacia forests, it added value to the production chain, stimulating the producer and encouraging the cultivation of the species.

The modernization of processes accelerated from the 80's and in the 90's a unit was created for the development and commercialization of tannin derived products.

The current administration of the company seeks to consolidate new business and expand into new markets to ensure the sustainability of the business and the company. Today, SETA conducts business on all continents, in more than 70 countries.

It all starts with the the promotion of the Black Acacia plantation. After the growing cycle, Black Acacia trees are harvested and the land areas are prepared for new planting.
