As members of NH Foods Group, at Breeders & Packers Uruguay we commit to making people happy by empowering their health through the products that we manufacture. We call this Joy of Eating and it is the core of our corporate culture, as we believe that proper nutrition favors satisfaction and well-being.
For that reason, Food Security plays a leading role because as it directly affects human health, it becomes priority in all our operations. Not only is it our main responsibility, but a core corporate value, involving all of us who belong to the company.
To guarantee safety, legal compliance, authenticity and security of our products, we have implemented an Integrated Quality System, based on international standards that are acknowledged by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), including BRC, FSSC 22000, Hazard Analysis and Control of Critical Points System (HACCP), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOP) and Animal Welfare Standards, among others, and complying with current national and international regulations.
Our commitment to the continuous improvement of the implemented Quality Assurance and Safety System requires dynamic planning and constant verification, together with permanent staff training and both internal and external efficient communication.
Our activities are aimed at satisfying the requirements of our customers, consumers, suppliers, shareholders and employees. We focus on adopting efficient measures to guarantee that our products result from processes that respect the environment, contribute to the development of a healthy community and assure Animal Welfare.
To guarantee compliance with this Policy, our Direction Team commits to constantly improve the Quality and Food Safety Management System and to comply with Animal Welfare standards, customer requirements, our suppliers and shareholders expectations, current regulations, certified international standards, and thus achieve the continuous development of our employees. Besides, we encourage all the involved ones to join this challenge which is only achievable through the sum of our efforts.
