The PAS provides workshops, informative lectures, and training courses to the company staff in the entire production chain from farms, to transport, processing, and distribution. It also covers food services by developing teaching materials and methodologies.
In addition, the programme enables professionals to provide advice and consulting to firms and gives information to consumers about food safety. The implementation of the programme throughout Brazil has increased the safety and quality of food, increasing the competitiveness of the Brazilian food companies in the domestic and in international markets SENAI, The actions of PAS from January to August resulted in the award of declarations of adequacy to the implantation of HACCP, mainly in the state of Rio Grande do Sul southern of Brazil , the approval of plans and revalidations of this system.
In , PAS actions covered 24 Brazilian federative states, comprising more than h of consulting service mainly in the region of Rio Grande do Sul. From to , a total of GMP programmes were implemented by PAS in Brazil, highlighting the importance of this programme for the improvement of food safety and quality in Brazil Tondo et al.
Brazil is an important food producer and exporter and efforts to avoid hazards are of paramount importance in its food production chain. The scenario of food-borne disease outbreaks and relevant hazards in foods in Brazil shows that the use of a validated Food Safety Management System is essential to ensure safe and high-quality food.
Several strategies can be taken in order to overcome difficulties found in Brazil for ensuring the production of safe and quality food. At first, it is crucial to update some Brazilian obsolete food regulations taking into account new technologies and hazards. Another question that must be addressed is the fact that Brazilian food quality and safety programmes should be focused on preventing contamination rather than responding to it.
Legal requirements also need to be adapted to specific production systems from the small to large industries, producers and food services, and taking also into account traditional methods of food processing. Another issue that must be considered is a conflict of competences of Brazilian sanitary authorities due to overlapping regulations. Also, producers should be aware of, and comply with, all legal obligations relevant to a quality and safe production of food. Competent authorities should train producers, thus contributing to the effective execution of regulations.
The adoption of safety and quality management programmes in some regions of Brazil still remains a challenge due to factors such as the unawareness of their importance by mainly the population but also the local producers, the lack of training of them, and the lack of systematic inspection by authorities. The development of technological solutions for the food production chain that suits the requirements and fits in the budget of local producers is also of paramount importance for ensuring quality and safe food in Brazil, taking also into account economic, social, and sustainable aspects.
