JBS now has 50 beef plants in Brazil

JBS SA is opening two new beef processing plants this month in Brazil, increasing its slaughter capacity to about 40,000 head per day, adding R$ 1 billion in net sales per year to its Brazilian beef division.

Strategically, the opening of the first JBS plant in the state of Tocantins could offer the company a new level of flexibility in logistics. Lying in the center of Brazil, the state has the most competitive production costs in livestock in the country, and more than eight million animals.

Both plants will process beef for both the domestic and export markets - initially the Middle East, Europe and Russia. A company spokesman said that JBS used tax breaks in both states to help reopen the plants.
