The Opinion issued by SEAE recommends that the Conselho Administrativo de Defesa Economica – CADE (Administrative Council for Economic Defense) should approve the transaction with certain restrictions, proposing two alternatives which may or may not be implemented by the Administrative Council for Economic Defense.

It's important to notice that, according to Law n# 8.884/94, the Opinion issued by SEAE does not have a definitive or binding effect, but only supports the administrative decision to be ruled by CADE, which is not bound to the Opinions' terms and conditions.  The full text of the Opinion can be obtained at SEAE's website ( – Portuguese version only.

BRF emphasizes its trust that there are sufficient technical grounds to prove to CADE that the transaction does not constitute an anti-competitive practice, but solely reinforces the competitiveness of Brazil abroad.  In view of the absence of relevant barriers to entry, the intense competition and the development of substantial synergies and efficiencies, BRF is confident that CADE will approve the transaction.
