BRASIL, Sao Paulo. BRF’s new office in Asia, located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will accelerate the company’s international expansion, especially in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The new office will enable the company to compile relevant information more rapidly and to accelerate the mapping of new investment opportunities in the region.
In the fourth quarter of 2015, BRF announced a series of acquisitions (distributors, companies and brands) in connection with the company’s strategy of improving its local agility and dominance in sales channels. In Asia, the company acquired Thailand-based Golden Foods Siam (GFS), which is the third-largest exporter of chicken products and enjoys access to important markets, such as the European Union, Japan and Southeast Asian countries.
