BRF SA, one of the largest food companies in the world and a leading global provider of animal protein, is using Check&Trace Salmonella as an integral part of the Salmonella reduction program in place at BRF SA throughout the production chain.
“BRF is committed to develop products of high quality,” says Fabrício da Silva Delgado, Director of Animal Production and Health at BRF. “We invest in research and in innovation and continuously monitor the health of our livestock to minimize the incidence of contamination. Through state of the art molecular tests we are able to pinpoint and eliminate the source of contamination in the most efficient manner. Our association with Check-Points is a key part in this strategy.”
Both companies are planning to work together on a similar approach to screen and understand resistance in livestock, using Check-Points’ innovative molecular antibiotic resistance technology such as Check-MDR CT, currently used by ivy league hospitals.
