Soja Innovation & Improvement
Assuming innovation as an integral part of its DNA, the Group created the SIM Project – Soja Inovação & Melhoria (Soja Innovation & Improvement).
This project is part of the way in which innovation is seen throughout the Group, aiming at transforming and materializing ideas from several functional areas, with a special focus on products and services.
The innovation process in SOJA DE PORTUGAL is understood as a process directed to identify, retain and spread knowledge within the organization and with its surroundings; as a process defined for capturing, sorting, evaluating and selecting innovative ideas that, once developed, translate into added value for the organization; and as a process developed for the planning, implementation and monitoring of RDI projects, ensuring the achievement of the defined objectives.
We have been certified by the Portuguese Standard 4457: 2007 since 2017, being our reference for the Research, Development and Innovation Management System (IDI) in force in the group. Thus, the main points of our IDI policy are:
• Knowledge exchange and the enhancement of generating ideas;
• The development of industrial research and/or development and/or innovation projects;
• The efficiency of the RDI management system and the fulfillment of applicable requirements. Its guiding principles should be understood as a priority by all employees and followed in their daily lives in order to create value.
