Since the creation of the Company in 1962, through hard work, honesty and trust, many people have contributed to its growth, helping us become a leader in the meat industry.
Our Company started as a small abattoir that worked solely for the domestic market, and grew thanks to significant investment, both on the slaughter plant and cold storage capacity, until in 1966 we were granted the authorization to export, with Registry Number 344. Our initial operations were limited to cattle, but we later added the permit for processing ovine meat. To this day, Frigorífico San Jacinto - Nirea S.A. has operated with no interruptions, keeping that same permit number that it is still recognized across the world’s markets.
Since the year 2000, we have strengthened the professionalization and modernization of our Company’s management. We are a sound Company, with excellent prestige and reliability records, and we operate in a country that has steadily grown as a meat producer and exporter for many years. This soundness is shown each year by our presence in more than 50 foreign markets; our products reach over 300 customers annually, a clear demonstration of our predominantly exporting profile.
Following the example of our visionary leaders and the vocation of our current shareholders, at Frigorífico San Jacinto - Nirea S.A. we proceed with our relentless efforts for improvement, innovation and growth, as we envisage a future that will bring increasing and demanding challenges for the Company.
In 2005, we launched a comprehensive plan to renew our infrastructure. The cattle and ovine slaughter premises were remodeled, and a system of pens was built in compliance with the animal welfare standards. Moreover, we fine-tuned the process for the treatment of waste water and implemented a system for the management of solid waste.
We also updated the frozen products storage technology and built new chilling and freezing tunnels. Renewable energy sources, animal welfare, solid and liquid waste treatment, sustainability, corporate social responsibility, efficiency and state-of-the-art technology are key elements of this new phase.
From its start, Frigorífico San Jacinto - Nirea S.A. forged long-term links with producers, customers, the state, health authorities and officials. Over the years, and supported by first-class IT technology, the Company has been a pioneer in providing reliable and audited information. Producers receive a broad range of feedback, including the individual weight of each animal they send. The doors of our Company are always open to receive visits of all kinds, from inspections from potential new buyers to technical visits of education centers. Frigorífico San Jacinto - Nirea S.A. has managed to nurture an excellent relationship with producers/suppliers, characterized by trust, which is a permanent source of satisfaction for the Company. Through an orderly planning of production, we provide information to producers on the number of animals that will be required so they can plan their work; our Company also benefits since we make sure that all commitments with the customers can be met in a timely manner.
Thanks to our certification in quality, energy efficiency, corporate social responsibility, animal welfare, validated specific protocols or protocols of the various breeds, we are in a position of doing things well and showing evidence thereof. The quality and safety of the products of Frigorífico San Jacinto - Nirea S.A. are based not only on proper production standards, but also and foremost on the application of stringent hygiene and animal health standards, as well as the most stringent control systems. The purchase of livestock, both cattle and ovine, is done under special slaughter programs, and is agreed with producer groups or breeder associations, following clearly defined protocols and our own-payment-for-quality schemes.
With future generations in mind, Frigorífico San Jacinto - Nirea S.A. works actively to strike a balance in our area of influence. With our Company’s human resources, policies focused on education, health and sports, a demanding corporate social responsibility plan, and permanent jobs for the care of the environment, we constantly pledge and renew our commitment to sustainability.
