JBS decides to reopen in slaughterhouse in Presidente Epitácio

After an agreement with the Government of São Paulo, JBS has announced it is to reopen its slaughterhouse in Presidente Epitácio, in the state, eight months after shutting it down for tax reasons.

JBS had complained about tax credits managed by the government of São Paulo on the purchase of cattle from Mato Grosso do Sul state. Under the new agreement it can now use these credits to acquire inputs, such as packaging and fuels.

Work will be resumed next week, except for the slaughter of animals - the plant will be supplied with raw material from other JBS units. JBS says the plant will produce 9,500 tons of meat a month, which may be expanded according to demand, said the director of investor relations, Jeremiah O'Callaghan.
