ANNOUCEMENT TO THE MARKET

 

 

BRF SA (“BRF” or “Company”) (B3: BRFS3; NYSE: BRFS) announces to its shareholders and the market in general that its production facility located in Rio Verde GO (“Rio Verde Plant”) is temporarily suspended in compliance with the local Federal Inspection Service determination, due to deviations found in the local water supply system.

In view of the foregoing, the Company is endeavoring all its efforts in order to normalize, as soon as possible, its operations in that production facility. It is worth noting that the commercialization of finished products in inventory continues in normal course.

In relation to the article published in Valor Econômico newspaper, on this date, entitled “Ministry banned BRF production complex in Goiás”, BRF affirms that the statements about the maintenance of parallel records, with the intention to tamper the required standards by law, are untrue. Likewise, the Company rejects the declarations contained in this article, based on anonymous sources, regarding its corporate practices. The Company constantly monitors the capture and treatment of water for its production facilities, which involves distinct and complementary monitoring and collection at different stages of the process, in compliance with the law.

BRF guides its activities based on the principles of integrity, transparency and respect for the lawand reiterates that it has rigorous food safety processes and quality controls, in addition to reinforcing its commitment to continue improving its processes and internal controls to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety.

The Company will keep its shareholders and the market in general duly informed of any new information related to this announcement.
