sanitary protocol

Since March 2020, the pandemic has led agribusinesses to reinforce their sanitation procedures in order to preserve the lives of their employees and guarantee the quality of their products.

Our industry had taken measures even before Brazil went into quarantine, by intensifying precautions which were already strict. Our first sectoral protocol dates back to March 12 and was one of the first in Brazil. We have since developed four further protocols, updating them with advances in the information being made available by Brazilian and international health agencies such as ANVISA (Brazilian Health and Regulatory Agency) and the World Health Organization. These are technically-based rules that have been validated by epidemiologists, to ensure the safety of those who are working in the industry. See below:

Their body temperature is measured; and workstations are separated by barriers. Guidance is provided throughout the entire process of boarding, travelling, and disembarking so that distancing between people can also be maintained as they leave.

All accesses are signposted with guidance; alcohol hand sanitizer is available, employees’ body temperature is measured, hand sanitation is encouraged, and footwear cleaning solution is available at entrances and in changing rooms. Before taking their places on the production lines, employees sanitize their boots and hands with a detergent solution and alcohol sanitizer. Distancing is maintained with the use of barriers.

All employees wear some type of nose and mouth protective equipment, such as cloth and surgical masks, or even PFF2, N95 masks and Face Shields, according to the area of the plant where they work.

The entire cafeteria space is constantly sanitized. Distancing is also mandatory, with designated places and physical barriers between the tables. The entire space is signposted so that employees can move around safely.

Effective tracing is ensured by actively seeking for cases. Any identified cases and all employees in close contact with them are immediately removed.

BRAZIL

Counting with vast fields of grains, fertile land and an extremely favorable climate, Brazil is a partner of several countries worldwide in providing food security. Concerning chicken exports, since 2004 Brazil keeps its position as the largest exporter in the world, supplying over 150 countries. More than 4 million tons are shipped out of the country´s ports every year. In Brazilian farms, technological excellence in genetics management and environment have guaranteed enormous progress in production, making the country the second largest producer of chicken meat worldwide, with more than 13 million tons of chicken meat annually and 3.9 million tons of pork annually. The same quality is noticeable in Brazilian egg production, the seventh largest in the world, and exported to dozens of the most demanding countries around the globe. All these links in the chain highlight the relevance of Brazilian poultry and pork production, noteworthy for its quality, health and efficiency, guaranteeing that Brazil’s poultry and pork farming products are on the tables of consumers in all the continents.

The Strictest

CONTROLS

Dedication, work and an incessant effort for excellence over decades of research,
high-tech employment and significant investments in production structures.
This is how Brazil’s poultry and pork production has reached levels of efficiency that have made them international references.

Not one single case of Avian Influenza (IA) on record in Brazil and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PEDv) on record in Brazil

Brazil has reached an excellent level when it comes to sanitary status. In poultry production, no cases of Avian Influenza (IA) have ever been recorded in Brazilian territory. In pork production, total control of the chain has kept the country free of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PEDv), Classical Swine Fever and Foot and Mouth Disease.

Quality

MADE IN BRAZIL

All meat produced and exported by Brazil is subject to strict quality and sanitary control, fully inspected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA). Each stage in the production process is carefully inspected by MAPA, which relies on a large structure with specialized departments comprised of highly trained professionals. At each exporter processing unit in Brazil, there is a Federal Inspection Service (Serviço de Inspeção Federal - SIF) performing oversight “in loco.”

Our poultry and pork industries and farms comply with strict food safety protocols in a highly technical environment within standards established by the Codex Alimentarius (FAO) and World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in total compliance with standards of animal well-being.

The aforementioned qualities, along with the versatility of Brazil’s poultry and pork industries, precisely fulfill the needs of customers and the demands and tastes of all continents. This process grants Brazil an established place as a global leader in exports and an important partner in food security in several demanding markets.

Among those processes, there are complex and detailed programs focused on preserving quality and food safety. At the same time, the exporting plants are periodically assessed by health authorities from countries to which Brazil exports.

STATUS

Brazil is a country free of Avian Influenza – adopting high surveillance over this disease, which includes compartmentalization in genetics – with a high level of biosecurity in production plants following OIE criteria.

Currently, Brazil has 15 states and the Federal District free of Classical Swine Fever

and the remaining 10 states are in the eradication phase. In 2016, a Working Group was set up to elaborate a strategy proposal for the eradication of classical swine fever in the states of northeastern Brazil. Moreover, Brazil is free of African Swine Fever, a severe viral disease that impacts swine production in Asia, Europe and Africa.

Brazil:

A PARTNER OF LOCAL INDUSTRIES

For decades, Brazil has contributed to serving the growing demand for animal protein in every continent, with export products that guarantee quality, health and an affordable price. In the case of chicken meat, for instance, Brazilian products are found in over 150 markets, with export volumes that are surpluses from Brazil, complementing importing countries supply and contributing to technological innovation, with a constant commitment to meet the specific product and quality requirements in each country. Whether supplying products for processing (as is the case of the European Union) or supplying international restaurant chains (as in Japan, China and others), the exports of Brazilian animal protein contributes to the creation of jobs and income in the importing countries. Moreover, Brazil helps partner countries to meet the greater demand for the cuts most wanted by their populations, supplementing local supply.

Integrated Production

LEADING TO QUALITY AND DEVELOPMENT

Based on production from smallholdings, poultry, egg and pork industries in Brazil provide a means of income stability for hundreds of thousands of farming families. They combine smallholdings and agribusiness in one large productive link that not only creates income but also excellent quality standards, with control of the process and complete traceability. Brazil produced 13.2 million tons of chicken meat in 2019. The country is the second largest producer as well as the world’s largest exporter, representing 35% of the world trade of chicken meat. From the total production of Brazilian chicken meat, 69% is destined for the domestic market and 31% is exported to 150 countries, feeding on average 396 million people per year.

Sustainability:

A BRAZILIAN DIFFERENTIAL

The Brazilian chicken and pork export industry also has sustainability among its brands. The favorable climate, in addition to investments in renewable energy sources and quality of its facilities, allows Brazil to produce poultry at a level of CO² emission, for instance, 45% below that in the United Kingdom and 50% lower than poultry farming in France, according to data from DEFRA – UK. In addition, all production is done outside the Amazon Biome, which is in the north region of Brazil. More than 80% of our production is installed in the South and Southeast regions. While internal factors help reduce CO² emissions, companies invest in a wide range of initiatives aimed at preserving and reusing resources to increase productivity and reduce environmental impacts.
