Consumer credibility and trust: Registration with MAPA provides a mark of reliability to the establishment's products, increasing consumer confidence and strengthening the company's reputation in the market.

Market access: In many cases, regularization with MAPA is a requirement to access certain markets, both nationally and internationally, expanding business and export opportunities.

Brand image protection: Maintaining good practices and compliance with MAPA regulations helps protect the brand's image and reputation, demonstrating a commitment to food safety and product quality.


In summary, regularizing a meat and derivatives establishment with MAPA is essential to ensure legality, food safety, market credibility, and access to business opportunities.

Step-by-step guide to regularizing a meat and derivatives establishment:

Company registration: The first step is to ensure that the company is properly registered with competent authorities, such as the Commercial Registry and the Federal Revenue Service.

Municipal Licensing: It is essential to obtain municipal licenses and operating permits, which may vary according to local legislation.

Registration in SISBI-POA: The Brazilian System of Inspection of Animal Origin Products (SISBI-POA) is the national system that standardizes and harmonizes procedures for inspecting animal origin products. The establishment must be registered in this system to commercialize its products throughout the national territory.

Facilities Adequacy: The establishment must meet the infrastructure and hygiene requirements established by MAPA, ensuring adequate facilities for processing meat and derivatives.

Preparation of Good Practices Manual and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP): The establishment must develop and implement a manual of good practices and SOPs, describing operational procedures to ensure the quality and safety of products.

Sanitary Inspection: MAPA will conduct periodic inspections at the establishment to verify compliance with sanitary standards and regulations.

Obtaining the Inspection Seal: After approval of sanitary inspections, the establishment will receive the MAPA inspection seal, which allows the commercialization of products.
