MESSAGE FROM THE ADMINISTRATION
We, at Minerva Foods, are facing a new environment, one that will take the global meat and protein market to another level, a process that has been underway in recent years and which has been intensified by the impact of African swine fever in China. This represents a structural change that will have a strong impact on food safety and change the consumption habits in Asia, giving precedence to beef.

Minerva Foods’ strategy is based on the highest standards of excellence in national and international corporate governance. In addition to being part of B3’s New Market, the Company is the only representative of its sector in Latin America to have obtained financing from the International Financial Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, which is committed to applying sustainable practices and generating value for the entire production chain.

These achievements are supported by a set of measures such as the alignment with the Brazilian Institute of Corporate Governance (IBGC) Code of Best Practices, whose fundamental principles include transparency, equity, accountability, and corporate responsibility. The Company also operates in accordance with the rules of the Brazilian Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM), Law No. 6404/76, of Corporations and its Bylaws. By adopting these guidelines within its matrix management structure, it intensifies the dynamics of internal processes and the agility and efficiency in meeting market requirements.
