“We are honored that Paulo has joined the Diamond V team,” says Francisco Portela, Poultry Business Development Manager for Diamond V. “In his new role, he will provide technical support not only in production, but also focusing on food safety assessment and mitigation for the poultry production chain in Brazil.”


Raffi earned his BS in Business Administration from the State University of West Paraná and earned his veterinary degree from the Federal University of Pelotas. He brings more than 25 years of poultry industry experience in Brazil and internationally in Latin America, the USA, and Europe. During this period, he held various roles for companies including Sadia, Hygen and Cobb-Vantress along with being invited to contribute to major poultry trade and producers associations, the State of Sao Paulo government, and federal government sanitary committees. In 2015 he was nominated by a specialized magazine as one of the top 100 influencers in the Brazilian poultry sector.
