JBS looking at another acquisition in Rio Grande do Sul

A month after taking over Doux Frangosul’s operations in Brazil, JBS has shown signs of expanding its operations in Rio Grande do Sul. Shut down three years ago, pig slaughterhouse Frigorizzi, in Mato Castelhano, is said to be the target. The plant slaughtered between 800 and 1,000 head a day. The possibility was aired during a meeting in São Paulo between the president of JBS, Wesley Batista, and industry leaders, among them the president of Fetag (Federation of Agricultural Workers in Rio Grande do Sul), Elton Weber, and the president of Ubabef (the Brazilian Poultry Association), Francisco Turra. Officially, the company says that it is considering all its options.

In plants it has already acquired, poultry slaughter in Montenegro and Passo Fundo will resume by June 18. They will reopen at 85% of capacity before they were shut down, at 400,000 to 480,000 birds a day.
