The pineapple originated in South America.
Once discovered by the Europeans, the pineapple - so rare and unique - became a symbol of royalty. It took an entire century for Europeans to successfully grow their very first pineapple!
(It must be difficult to duplicate the tropical humid
Brazilian weather in Europe)
Pineapples were exchanged as gifts to the elite or served at feasts only fit for kings. Over time, the pineapple became more accessible and not limited to royals alone.
Soon, the pineapple became an emblem of
friendship and hospitality.
For us, brigs are like the pineapple - we love to share them as representations of celebration,
happiness and friendship.
