    “I was born on top of a bag of sugar!”

    This sentence is used by Mr. Nestor Heineck, father of the brothers Fernando, Alexandre and Ricardo Heineck, to introduce himself. They are all part of a confectioner´s family - with more than 80 years of tradition - explaining the great love story for the candy business. This passion that runs deep into in their veins has shown that hard work, dedication, commitment and innovation make the difference.

    Located in Lajeado, south of Brazil, the company was established in 1991 by the Heineck brothers, Docile has more than 250 items in its portfolio, divided into seven categories: Jellies, Pressed Candies, Licorices, Chewing Gums, Gummies, Marshmallows and Powdered drinks.

    Docile’s headquarters is located in Lajeado and the second facility is based in Vitória de Santo Antão, northeast of Brazil. The company has more than 800 employees, a constructed area of more than 40,000 m2 and produces more than 2.6 million kilograms per month, supplying the national market and exporting to more than 60 countries.

This is done through continuous improvement of our products and processes to create a desire for our brands.

With around 800 direct employees, Docile focuses on one of its main values: to do everything well and always innovate, offering consumers quality and unique products.
