The innovation is in BRF’s DNA and spreads through the development and production processes of all our products, from the ingredients, to the preparation process and even to the packaging. Year after year, we have maintained the allocation of resources for research and development in agricultural products and studies.
With this, the idea is to anticipate and direct consumer trends, improve our presence in the points of sale in strategic categories, and strengthen our brands.
The studies that we carry out contemplate several parts of our chain: for example, the agricultural ones are made to improve the genetics of our assets (plantations), to improve the feed conversion ratio (relation between weight gain and consumed ration) and to generate important gains in axes such as animal welfare.
In our laboratories and Innovation Centers, we also conduct constant studies on our products. Some of them allow us to achieve great achievements, as was the reduction of 30% of sodium in several products of the brand Sadia. The categories of ready meals, sausages, seasoned chicken, cooked sausage and Frescal sausage in Brazil already count with the decrease of this component.
Our brands, always attentive to the needs of the consumer, think of solutions that facilitate the day to day and innovate with each launch developed worldwide. In 2017 alone, there were 294 new products available to the consumer, 94 in Brazil, 72 in the Asia region, 21 in Europe, 45 in Africa, 20 in the Americas, 32 in the Southern Cone (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay) and 10 in the Middle East.
