BRF understands animal welfare as one of the strategies for the sustainable development of the company, being one of the ethical principles that involve production and that makes possible the improvement of the working environment, the human-animal relationship and, consequently, productivity.
For this cause to be a company-wide principle, we engage several areas of the company, from those directly involved to corporate leadership. The animal welfare program at BRF is sponsored by the vice presidency of Quality and Sustainability and is supported by a diverse group of specialists. Check out governance to address this commitment:
BRF has a strict commitment to zero tolerance for animal abuse, whether through abuse or neglect. It has yet to work to avoid routine mutilation and to eliminate such practices as much as possible. Yet, there are internal corporate standards that guide good practices, from farms to humanitarian slaughter, through emergency and transportation plans. Check out our document Commitments to Animal Welfare, updated in December 2019, and learn about our main guidelines.
