According to the minister, the company that has the capacity to process more than a thousand animals per day, requires a greater effort to provide sufficient raw materials to the factory.

On the other hand, the chairman of Valinho’s Board of Directors, Hélder do Espírito, was pleased with the minister’s visit and said he was confident in improving the production of local raw materials to facilitate the processing of meat in the country.

The Valinho company is the largest meat processing firm in the country and has existed for twenty years in the national market.
