How it works: The partitioning is a program that basically consists in structuring the production compartments, which map plants and farms and insulate structures.
With this production model, the response to epidemiological events will be faster and easier to control, reducing the economic impacts generated and giving greater health security to the production chain.
At the same time, being isolated, compartmentalized system provides better guarantees of continuity of international sales in the event of sanitary eventualities.
As the only major global producer never register Avian Influenza, Brazil won with the partitioning a great competitive advantage in the international market, offering greater guarantees to international customers, and make more effective harm reduction in occasional sanitary events.
Currently only producing farms of Cobb-Vantress (poultry genetics cut) are certified. Mills broiler BRF (Lucas do Rio Verde) and San Salvador Food (SSA), in addition to producing genetics Aviagen and Hendrix Genetics, are in the final stage of foreclosure.
The compartmentalization of the poultry projects were initiated in 2008 with support from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
