Resumo

VIEIRA, Luciana Marques. The role of food standards in international trade: assessing the brazilian beef chain. BAR, Braz. Adm. Rev. [online]. 2006, vol.3, n.1, pp.17-30. ISSN 1807-7692.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1807-76922006000100003.

The purpose of this paper is to identify how Brazilian beef managers have responded to a rapid expansion and intensification of standards for beef exports. This issue relates to how some Brazilian beef exporters are strategically repositioning themselves in the supply chains. The literature of this study reviews global chain governance and international standards. The method uses case studies consisting of six medium and large scale beef exporters who export fresh beef to the European Union. The main findings describe the kinds of governance that stimulate upgrading and transferral of the best practices and, consequently, full compliance with mandatory standards. This study suggests that standards do matter for companies trying to increase international competitiveness. These results contribute an understanding of the Brazilian beef chain, and also of other supply chains coping with demanding and changing international markets. Managerial implications show the challenges facing Brazilian beef exporters in their efforts to sustain exports to the European Union and how they are using chain governance to improve their compliance with international standards and increase competitiveness.

Palavras-chave : food standards; global chains; international trade; case studies.
