Duas Rodas is committed to the production of safe food for its customers and consumers, a purpose that is based on a solid Food Safety Management System, based on the internationally recognized standards of FSSC 22000 certification, and disseminated in several product lines and units of the company. Our Food Safety Management System ensures that all potential health hazards to the consumer are controlled and the processes are planned, executed, monitored and improved continuously. The important management tool is aligned with global requirements and trends related to food safety.
With the Environmental Management System implemented in accordance with ISO 14001:2015, we are committed to raising, monitoring and controlling all possible environmental impacts, meeting the concept of sustainable development. The integration of industrial activities with the environment has always been one of the basic premises at Duas Rodas. Thus, the company seeks to meet legal requirements, minimize environmental impacts generated and develop technologies to optimize the use of environmental resources. Among different control measures, we have our own Effluent Treatment Station to treat liquid effluents and return water to nature within the legal parameters, in addition to promoting a comprehensive plan for solid waste management, with awareness actions, selective collection and search for recycling technology and reuse of waste. We monitor the use of natural resources, permanent targets of rationalization actions, including investments in equipment and new technologies. A biological system operates in the control of odors, and emissions from chimneys and vehicles undergo frequent analysis. The concern with the environment also includes 428 hectares of preserved area, the permanent search for equipment and solutions to reduce noise, in addition to an emergency prevention action plan with the support of a team of professional firefighters.
Based on the international standard ISO 9001:2015, our Quality Management System values the control of products and production processes, aiming at compliance with applicable laws and customer satisfaction, through the delivery of products and services of high standard. Our management by processes fosters continuous improvement with performance indicators, training the awareness and commitment of employees, with a focus on increasing customer satisfaction and according to laws applicable to the food industries.
