Slaughterhouses

quality protocol

Our industry had taken measures even before Brazil went into quarantine, by intensifying precautions which were already strict. Our first sectoral protocol dates from March 12th, 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 (the National Health Surveillance 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

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.

The Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) launched videos to show the precautions being taken by slaughterhouses throughout Brazil in order to protect their employees during the pandemic.

Taste Made in

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. On 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 notable on Brazilian egg production, the seventh largest in the world, and exported to dozens of the most demanding countries around the globe. All of 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, it
has never been recorded a case of Avian Influenza (IA) in Brazilian territory. In pork production,
total control of the chain has kept the country free of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PEDv),
Classical Swine F ever 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 Supply (MAPA) of Brazil. Eachstage of 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 afore mentioned 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 guarantees to Brazil an established place as a global leader in exports and an important partner in food security in various demanding markets.

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

Programs of

Quality

Brazil has adopted the National Plan for the Control of Residues and Contaminants (PNCRC) as a tool to manage risks and promote the safety of products of animal origin.

Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOP)

System inspected by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture and by the importing markets.

International certifications: GlobalGap, BRC, IFS, AloFree, among others.

Constant training based concept required by the various markets: Good Manufacturing, Practices, Traceability, Private Standards, among others.

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)

More than 1 thousand official missions and private visits in every year.

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP): preventive measures meant to reduces risk to the consumer.

Sanitary

STATUS

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

Sanitary

STATUS

Brazil is a country free of Avian Influenza – adopting high surveillance over this disease which includes compartmentalization in genetics – with 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: Food security in a sustainable and responsible way!

Brazil:

A PARTNER OF LOCAL INDUSTRIES

For decades, Brazil has contributed to serve the growing demand for animal protein in every continents, through exports products with guaranteed 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 which 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 excelent 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 and also the largest world exporter, representing 35% of the world trade of chicken meat. Of the total production of Brazilian chicken meat, 69% is destined for domestic market and 31% is exported to 150 countries, feeding in average 396 million of 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, allow 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, 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 number of initiatives aimed at preserving and reusing resources to increase productivity and reduce environmental impacts.
