GBCA: Brazil13able to remain relevant in the baby food industry next to Nestle is Jasmine Foods, whichis an organization that prepares organic baby food.Visiting. When visiting Brazil, foreigners may want to take note of a few culture differences. 1.English is not widely spoken in Brazil.English is rarely spoken outside of Rio de Janerio or Sao Paulo. As Portuguese speakers on a Spanish continent far from the English-speaking world, Brazilians have been a linguistic universe unto themselves (Robinson, 2013).2.Kissing strangers is a part of the culture. Brazilians do not believe in personalspace. It is easier getting to know someone when the emotional space is broken. It is a quick process getting to know people in Brazil. The natives are very friendly and have no problem coming up to you and kissing you on the cheek justto introduce themselves.3.There is a large gap between the rich and poor. Brazil has very few middle class people. You are either rich or poor. Some 6% of Brazilians live in the favelas (slums), according to the 2010 census. These mountains of bricks, rising in intricate forms, border the country's largest cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Hospitals, schools, security and an end to police abuse have been the principle demands of recent protestors from this social sector(Robinson, 2013).Family. Families are fairly large in Brazil. A Brazilian family generally consists of parents and five to seven children. Some families continue to have as many as fifteen children (Countries and their Cultures, 2016). Social events often include the immediate

Godparents are extremely vital in the rural areas of Brazil, but the importance is slowly declining in urban areas (Countries and their Cultures, 2016).Social Structures and OrganizationsClass awareness. Group dominance is very common in Brazil. Results also show that those who recognize the existence of racial discrimination in Brazil are more likely to support affirmative action (Bailey, 2004). Black mobilization in 20th century Brazil dates back at least to the founding of the Frente Negra Brasileira, or the Brazilian Black Front, in the 1930s. The Front’s goals were the moral uplift and material advancement of blacks. It disbanded when President Getúlio Vargas outlawed all political parties in 1937 (Bailey, 2004).Housing. Brazil has a high and uncontrollable poverty rate. There are a limited amount of affordable homes for the poor and lower class. Brazil is known to have an estimated over twelve million children living on the streets in desperate poverty. Its citiescombine modern skyscrapers, suburban houses, and impoverished slums. Known as favelas, Brazil's urban slums have been estimated to be home to as many as twenty-five million people. The inhabitants of favelas live in desperate poverty. Poor sanitation causes serious health problems. There is no garbage collection or sewer access (Countries and their Cultures, 2013).
