Considered by Tereza Cristina, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply, the Self-Control Program is an important priority step forward for the productive sector, says the president of the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), Francisco Turra.
The official program of self-control, defended by the productive sector, aims to enable agricultural industries demonstrate that their products meet the health requirements required by law, in the audit of the Ministry.
“It is the company ‘s interest to ensure the quality of products. To say otherwise is frivolous. They adopt various tools and processes for this purpose. The government surveillance will remain active, but the control view will be replaced by the most comprehensive warranty, with the involvement of agro-industries and government “advocates.
Turra points out that Brazil is also inspected by the importing countries.
“There are over 1000 private and official missions to assess the Brazilian product. Being leader in chicken meat and a major in pork, countries inspect with ‘magnifying glass’ the imports coming from Brazil. And yet, the country follows solid in its exports, which proves the effectiveness of controls adopted by agribusinesses.” he says.
The Minister Tereza Cristina inaugurated last week the debate on the system in the Standing Group of Self, with participation of the public and private sectors. ABPA is represented in the group by the National Confederation of Industries (CNI).
