Everyone is responsible for innovation at Frimesa, so we encourage and value technological and scientific development to generate new ideas and projects that aim to improve and create new products, processes and services. In 2017, Frimesa was elected the most innovative company in Paraná state.
We have implemented policies, rules and processes that help control and standardize our meat production, ensuring food safety with the implementation of good practices.
We work as a central office for five cooperatives, operating in the pork and dairy products’ chains. This joint effort to obtain the best results comes from the productive cooperation between Frimesa, its affiliated cooperatives and associated producers. In addition, it involves the processes of supplies delivery, technical follow-up of animal development, and delivery to Frimesa, where it can industrialize and commercialize the products.
Third parties and suppliers’ activities are also carefully controlled. There are audits from government, customers and certification companies to validate the compliance according to the required quality, health, environmental and legal standards. Our main factories have the IFS Global Markets Food (GFSI) certification, which is focused on food safety management.
Our Quality Management sector also has laboratories for analysis and monitoring of raw materials, products during process and final products. Industrial lines have Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Standard Sanitizing Operating Procedures (SSOP) plans – which are important requirements for ensuring the safety of manufactured foods.
