Doux-Frangosul: Passo Fundo unit resumes slaughter

After more than 60 days on paid leave and vacation, the employees at the Passo Fundo plant leased for ten years by JBS - resumed operations on Monday (June 18). The resumption of the activities started at 85% of total daily slaughter capacity, which is 400,000 chickens.

In Rio Grande do Sul, 2,500 integrated farmers have resumed supplies to Doux Frangosul slaughterhouses. Maximum capacity should be reached in September, both at the Passo Fundo plant and the pone in Montenegro, which resumed operations last week. From then on, 1.1 million birds a day will be slaughtered.

According to the executive director of the Rio Grande do Sul Poultry Association (Asgav), José Eduardo dos Santos, the resumption is an important development for the sector. "There are hundreds of suppliers and employees coming back to work," he says. The company will continue focusing on the export market. On July 11 integrated farmers will get the third and final installment of payments they are owed.
