Farm animals mean business for BRF – Brasil Foods. Among the world’s largest food companies, the Brazilian provider of fresh and frozen meats operates its own farms, slaughterhouses, animal-feed units, incubators, and processing plants. The company’s lineup comprises three thousand-plus items, including chicken, pork, some beef and dairy, as well as a slew of processed foods (representing 60% sales), such as butter, cheese, desserts, ready-to-eat meals, pasta, and pizza. Products are sold under many brands — Perdigão, Sadia, Batavo, Chester, and Perdix — at home and abroad. Founded in 1934, BRF – Brazil Foods was transformed by a $3.8 billion-merger of its former company, Perdigão, with rival Sadia in 2009.
