Brazilian poultry and food processing company BRF has reorganised its global structure to accommodate the growth and globalisation of the company.
 
The company is to be divided into five global regions with general managers reporting to the global CEO.
 
The five areas are Brazil, Latin America, Europe / Eurasia, Asia and Africa / Middle East.
 
They will have the support of the corporate sectors such as Quality and Management, Innovation and Marketing, Supply Chain, Legal and Corporate Relations, Finance and People.
 
Flavia Faugeres, who was head of the Marketing and Innovation of the company, will be the General Manager of Brazil, which also has five regional managers Northeast (based in Recife), Midwest / North (GMT), São Paulo (São Paulo, SP), South (Curitiba) and Southeast (Rio de Janeiro).
 
The company said that the General Managers and regional leaders will play a decisive role in setting the priorities of the BRF in different markets.
 
Each regional board will have its own staff to decentralise services, strengthen the business structures and respond more quickly to the demands of each market.
 
The reorganisation is part of the restructuring announced two years ago.
