The Brazilian wooden products segments suffer from a great lack of strategies and procedures related to the production of the products itself.

The floors are considered as the higher value-added products in the forest segment when you talk about wood-based products, therefore they need a minimum standard of quality to be produced and commercialized at the best possible quality level. The lack of these standards might cause an unfair competition because some sellers can sell products of bad quality, what results in the customer’s demotivation in using wood floors.
