Sadia’s Lucas do Rio Verde plant in Mato Grosso is today the biggest slaughter and food processing facility in Brazil and is a benchmark in the Brazilian market for technological processes – one the most advanced in the world – for the adoption of sustainability principles.


When Racional was commissioned to undertake its construction, it was considered a complex project from the technology and logistics standpoint.


Racional undertook further projects for Sadia in São José dos Campos (São Paulo State), Paranaguá (Paraná State) and Rondonópolis (Mato Grosso State).

    Due to its location and size, Racional had to prepare a detailed plan of supplies for all its activities considering various difficulties such as the distance from urban and trade centers, lack of access roads and shortage of manpower.


    The other great challenge was the tight delivery timeframe and the size of the project which required extremely high production levels.


    The structure of the building is made up of flight auger piles, calyx foundation blocks, precast pillars and beams, alveolar slabs and a conventional reinforced concrete structure.
