formula of the beer as it detected that the consumer wanted a product more refreshing and so adapted to the Venezuelan palette and our tropical climate then decided to make a variation in the ingredients of the beer replaced 20% of the malted barley with corn flakes also known as beer chips and add more carbon dioxide so he managed to reformulate the polar beer adapting it to the consumers tastes printing in an unrivaled body and flavor this led her quickly to occupy the first place in the preference of Venezuelans in 1954 created the process to produce the cornflake for polar group in order to substitute the import of this raw material counting by then with three brewing plants in operation and being the Corn Flakes one of the main ingredients of the beer formula the company decided to build its own corn processing plant in term era a ragout estate this decision would be a decisive step in the later development of the food business the precooked maize flour herring a PA n for the era pass Ruba checked old when had the idea of making a flower to make arrow pass with the corn flakes that we used in the beer industry I met with some manufacturers of era pass in era Paris that existed in the country and they considered our project to be very complicated I thought that if we change the grinding and the humidity of the cornflakes we could get a precooked flour that would not give so much work to the housewife I called a REM Avenger technician to prepare a sample and we got what we wanted launched in 1960 the herring our PA n rapidly gained acceptance among housewives
