OUR HISTORYRead more
Inspiring examples must come from ourselves
Ethics and integrity go hand in hand with transparency, whether in personal and professional relationships, when communicating information or negotiating with integrated producers and investors. These are qualities that serve as reference for our activities and deserve the uttermost attention of everyone.
This belief should be imbued in each employee and third-party that interacts with the Company, from suppliers of raw materials to the communities that support and compose our chain. We want our transparency to transcend the gates of our units and corporate offices, and be perceived by consumers.
As part of our work to disseminate ethical and transparent behavior, our Compliance Department is responsible for promoting an ethical culture among each of our employees.
We have a code of conduct, called the "BRF Transparency Manual", which is available here, and offer a channel for reporting violations to the guidelines of said code. The BRF Transparency Channel is available to take reports of violations every day. Click here to access the channel.
We, at BRF, believe that, in order to inspire our communities to do right, we must first serve as an inspiring example. And we are counting on the collaboration of all members of our community to adopt the ethical and transparent behavior we seek on a daily basis.
Every day, BRF builds a philosophy that puts all of our employees, partners and clients around the world, on the same page. That is why we created the culture of Viva BRF, a set of initiatives, values and attributes that change everything: our connection to markets, the relations between managers and teams, the partnership between departments and even the motivation that drives us in our day-to-day activities.Read more
The management model adopted by BRF in its global operations tailors its processes and products to diverse consumer profiles and habits, while respecting the cultural traditions of the regions where the company operates. This structure is called “glocal”.Read more
Where we are
Since the creation of BRF in 2009, we started demarcating the focus area of each of our brands, offering specific products for each sector and a unique assortment for those who appreciate quality food. Our products reach more than 150 countries, spread over five continents, and our food brands, such as Sadia, Perdigão, Qualy, Perdix and Paty are consolidated around the world
Our business model is “glocal”, a neologism to describe the simultaneous trend of globalization and the appreciation of the characteristics of each region where BRF operates. The expansion of our international operations stands on four pillars that we adopted: investment in brands; expansion of the portfolio; advances in distribution and betting on local production.
BRF IN LATIN AMERICA: Argentina
The country is essential to BRF’s growth strategy, with a plan to expand and increase production capacity in order to create an export platform. BRF’s relationship with Argentina is strong: we have been operating in the country since 1992 and in 2011 we started producing locally and relying on a portfolio of leading brands in key categories, such as Paty and Vieníssima.
Currently we have an office and nine production units in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Córdoba, San Luis and Santa Fé.
BRF IN MIDDLE EAST: Abu Dhabi
Inaugurated in 2014, the industrial unit is located in Kizad and occupies an area of about 160,000 square meters, where more than 400 employees of 29 different nationalities work. The new plant benefits farmers and local ranchers, and represents a strengthening of the quality of BRF's commitment to the Middle East region where Sadia and Perdix are leading brands.
The operation is strategic for guaranteeing our supply capacity to serve Middle Eastern markets and the solid business performance led BRF to advance the project to expand production capacity from 70,000 tons/year to 100,000 tons/year, originally slated for 2020.
We are ranked as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the world, according to Forbes Magazine, and one of the 100 most sustainable on the planet, according to a study conducted by Corporate Knights and released at the beginning of 2014.Our effort to guarantee the quality of our services and products in our portfolio ensures our recognition by important organizations and the Brazilian and international press.Read more
