With this announcement, BRF has 14 plants authorised to export to China. Ten of these process poultry while the other four process pork.
Last month BRF said that it has established a ‘Permanent Multidisciplinary Monitoring Committee’ to monitor the coronavirus situation.
As well as this committee, several measures and protocols have been adopted in order to preserve the safety of all the people involved in its operational context, in addition to determine contingency plans to sustain its operations at normal pace.
It said: “BRF is operating normally at the moment, with the full functioning of its industrial facilities, distribution centers, logistics, supply chain and support offices, despite working temporarily and partially remotely in some of its corporate locations, not presenting any case of Covid-19 among its workers and any changes to its production, operation, and/or commercialization scheduling.”
