1944 is the year our story begins. We were born to revolutionize the kitchen with thoughts of practicality and convenience, without compromising on flavor and quality, of course.

Today, Sadia is part of your daily life. Present in more than 150,000 points of sale in Brazil, we offer more than 300 types of products, ranging from pork derivatives to the most delicious desserts.

After conquering the table of Brazilian consumers, the time has come for us to conquer the world. In 2009, together with Perdigão, we founded BRF and today we are in more than 140 countries, between the Middle East, Europe, Far East, Latin America and Africa.

An innovator by vocation, Sadia was the first to make frozen foods that make people’s lives easier. Lasagna, nuggets, pizza and hot pockets guarantee flavor and convenience for families. It’s no wonder that today we are one of the most remembered and valuable brands in the sector.

Since our foundation, we have cultivated our relationships from the field to the consumers’ table, ensuring products with nutritional value and quality.

Public Commitment

In our public commitment, we highlight the restriction on advertising aimed at children to those that only talk about products that have a nutritionally balanced profile.

BRF Institute

We created the BRF Institute, through which we invest in collective projects to improve the quality of life of the communities neighboring us. Step by step, we are changing the world.


The Lek Trek was born in 1971 and arrived to showcase the practicality, speed and convenience of the Sadia brand. His debut on TV, still in black and white, was in the role of a hero, helping a housewife with dinner problems. From then on, the public’s passion for our little chicken was born.

It was named in the 80s, through a national promotion and in a short time its name was already known throughout Brazil, soon becoming the symbol and official spokesperson of the brand.

Over the years, its design has undergone many changes, but without losing its unmistakable appeal. Today, after a complete 3D makeover, worthy of celebrities, it has once again entered the lives of Brazilians. Our mascot is full of stories, I bet you have one to tell about him.
