At the begin of the 20th century, the first coffee plantations in the South of the State, pushed the economy of cities like: Guaxupé, Varginha, Poços de Caldas, São Sebastião do Paraíso, Cabo Verde, São Sebastião da Grama, Três Corações, Alfenas and Lavras.
In the following decades, Varginha, was one of the cities that most welcomed Italian immigration in Brazil as an alternative to slavery, and this generated a high economic development for Varginha and region. At this moment, many establishments of drying and processes services for coffee were installed in the town and, also, many coffee farms.
With a history of courage and involvement, a group of coffee growers from the city joined and, believing in the strength of the cooperativism, founded what became, years later, Minasul.
