We have a passion for connecting people

About us

Our mission at Dutcham is to bring business professionals together during high-level networking events, exchange information and best practises across different industries, and ultimately contribute in an active way to the successes of our Dutch companies in Brazil.

A story that started more than 71 years ago

Dutcham is a non-profit association founded in 1952 with the objective to promote and assist trade businesses and investments between the Netherlands and Brazil.

After decades of providing a business support to our Dutch companies and business professionals, we became the official Dutch Chamber of Commerce in Brazil, recognized by the Dutch Embassy & Consulates and empowered by the major Dutch companies such as Heineken, Shell, ABN AMRO, Philips, KLM, DSM, Randstad and many more.

Today Dutcham became the unique platform that gathers all stakeholders who are doing or willing to do business with the Dutch community. A solid network of business professionals that offers great added value in terms of knowledge and expertise.

Our Board of Directors consists of top-level Executives, representing important parties in the bilateral commercial relationship between Brazil and the Netherlands, regardless of their origin or nationality.

Our vision of building solid relations

We focus on developing and maintaining a wide structure of networking activities, relevant business services and strong business relations with key stakeholders.

Our goal is to represent the interests of the Dutch business community – both companies and business professionals – and help them to expand their business opportunities in Brazil.

Besides supporting our companies who are currently present on the Brazilian market, we also provide a range of professional services to Dutch entrepreneurs who want to come and do business in Brazil. Our network of local business professionals and expertise on the market enable us to share great added value to potential newcomers into the market.

Our head office is based in São Paulo, with an official representative in Rio, enabling us to cover the main Dutch business activities across Brazil.
