WHAT’s NEW AT ESKO
Yes, things are happening at Esko. That shouldn't come as a surprise, because innovation is our middle name – and growth is in our genes. Check out the latest news!
On June 23rd the Brazilian team celebrated "Festa Junina", a typical Brazilian tradition.
Festa Junina, or “June Festival”, is an annual celebration that commemorates Saint Anthony, Saint John and Saint Peter and marks the end of summer and the beginning of the harvest.
The entire Brazilian Esko team gathered at the Sao Paulo office for the celebration, and each attendant brought typical food and beverages.
As June is the month when corn crops are harvested, the majority of the snacks and cakes are made of corn. A few popular examples include pamonha, canjica, corn on the cob and corn cakes.
Small prizes were given to the associates who were dressed traditionally and to those who made the best traditional food.
The typical clothes worn at the Festa Junina are vintage rural as the themes of harvest and rain are central to the festivities. Men wear short trousers with braces, while women put their hair up in ponytails and wear checkered dresses.
In addition, the team brought food and old sweaters to donate to a local charitable organization.
Nice gesture and great team work in Brazil!
