Sadia S.A. is a major Brazilian food producer that has been a subsidiary of BRF S.A. since 2009. It is among the world’s leading producers of frozen foods, and is Brazil’s main exporter of meat-based products.
In Portuguese the word "sadia" means "healthy" (f.).
Sadia was founded in Concórdia, Santa Catarina, Brazil, and has its headquarters there.
As of 2008, Sadia had about 20 industrial plants that together produced over 2.3 million tons of food including chicken, turkey, pork and beef, pasta, margarine, desserts, and other products. The company supplies over 70 thousand direct points of sale in Brazil and exports to over 100 countries.
In 2008, the company accrued enormous losses on the derivative market.
In 2009 the company announced a merger with its major competitor Perdigão, forming BRF - Brasil Foods (technically a takeover of Sadia by Perdigão, which already changed its corporate name to BRF - Brasil Foods S.A.).
