Procesadora Boliviana de Alimentos PROBAL was founded in 1996 by pioneer and visionary José Oscar Maldonado Orellana, his business vision made him bet on bringing the almond from the east to Cochabamba, his native land, to be able to process the abundant tropical crops commonly called Brazil nuts, Amazon nuts or para chestnut, which grow in the rich Amazon soil of the jungles of the Beni and Pando departments of Bolivia.

Probal is dedicated to processing to supply Brazil nuts and they are delivered to clients mainly in:

  • EE. UU.
  • Europe
  • England
  • Middle East
  • Australia
  • Russia

The company grew steadily over the following years, expanding its geographic reach on all continents and constantly expanding its customer base.

PROBAL has always worked closely with regional harvesters who supply Brazil nuts.


Currently, the company is run by the second generation of his sons, Giovanna and Oscar Maldonado, general and commercial managers, respectively, who gave the company its international technification, certification and projection.

Thanks to the new vision of the new entrepreneurs, the company has more safety and health certifications, among which ISO 22000 (food) and TÜV Rheiland and Kosher Certification stand out, which guarantee its quality for export.
