The Folha Group is one of the country's main media conglomerates. It controls the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, the news site Folha.com, Datafolha, one of the most respected research institutes in the country, a news agency (Folhapress), and CTG-F (Centro Tecnológico Gráfico-Folha), one of the largest and most modern graphics facilities in Latin America. Folha is also partner in SPDL, the distribution and logistics company established in association with the newspaper "O Estado de S. Paulo".
The story of the Folha Group began in 1921, when "Folha da Noite" (Night Folha) was founded in São Paulo as a newspaper aimed at the urban middle class that emerged from a society still based on the coffee monoculture.
Then came the newspapers "Folha da Manhã" (1925) and "Folha da Tarde" (1949). The three newspapers were merged in 1960, giving rise to Folha de S.Paulo.
