Institutional representation

Marfrig participates in  various movements  aimed at improving animal welfare practices:

Brazilian Association of Meat Exporting Industries (ABIEC). As a member, Marfrig actively participates in discussions on animal welfare in the various industrial segments, also collaborating with the development of rules and legislation on the subject.

The Humane Slaughter Program – The materials distributed by World Animal Protection (WAP) regarding good cattle management practices were recorded and photographed on the company's premises in mid-2007. Another opportunity for participation arose in the training phase for the Steps Program team, the result of a partnership between WAP and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA).

Legal transport -  Images captured during the accompaniment of shipment, transport and disembarkation of European animals in one of the company’s units located in Rio Grande do Sul  will be used in the Legal Transport DVD produced by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) for the development of professionals and encouragement of best cattle management practices.
