It is our belief that when our consumers are tasting a Sadia product, their expectations are very high. Therefore, our commitment with the perceived quality is translated by the application of systematic, specific tools that enable us to manage properly both our production process and the final product. This dedicated approach is designed to identify the appropriate level of control required for each manufacture step and ensure that all attributes that are cherished on the final product are meeting their expectations! Supported by our Quality System, we also approve our suppliers and ensure that standards and specifications are met for all ingredients and packaging materials. Additionally, our fully integrated system is composed of chicken farms, hatcheries and feed mills and allows us to control the farms where chickens are raised and their feed, the quality of the eggs throughout the hatchery time and health status of the live birds. This is just a small amount of our controls in place, which is part of a long history that literally starts from the egg (or from the chicken!!!) and ends in the serving plate.
