JBS racing to clear R$ 18 billion debt

It is not just the future of the company that is considered uncertain. From what has been said by the controllers themselves, the past has become hazy since it is not yet possible to determine whether corruption had distorted previous results. But there is one concrete fact: JBS has an R$ 8 billion debt to cover this year.
