Our efforts to produce meats with high quality standard are constant, and so that this may happen, we have the collaboration of all the company’s departments, from the purchase of the animals up to consumer service.
Meat quality is the result of safety procedures and standards that ensure animal welfare, healthcare, nutritional and sustainable practices.
To certify the quality and high standard of the animals, the Livestock Procurement department conducts strict audits, ensuring livestock breeding farms that fulfill the preceding stages to both the industrial animal welfare process and the breeding, pre-production handling and transport systems.
Throughout our entire production line self-control programs required and inspected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA, acronym in Brazilian Portuguese) are put in place.
All plant employees have qualification training on “Good Manufacturing Practices”, which make sure that rules are applied daily regarding personal hygiene, machines, facilities, common areas and cares in production. Additionally, the whole process obeys the “Sanitation Operating Procedures” with the hygiene conditions of the entire operation.
All transport activities up to the Industrial Units of Frigoestrela are carried out complying strictly with good animal welfare practices, including the unloading and pre-production handling operation. In our production lines, all self-control programs required and inspected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA, acronym in Brazilian Portuguese) and Importing Countries are put in place.
