About Us


About Us

We are the leading Brazilian company in the global meat processing industry, specializing in the production and sale of factory processed beef, chicken, and pork. With headquarters in São Paulo, we have established ourselves as the largest player in the market since our founding in 1953 in Anápolis, Goiás. With 150 industrial plants worldwide as of 2017, our company has achieved remarkable success.

As a 42% indirect shareholder in JBS S.A., which is publicly listed as JBSAY on American stock markets, J&F Investimentos has played a significant role in our growth. J&F Investimentos, owned by Joesley Batista and Wesley Batista, has contributed to our position as the world’s largest butcher, as of May 2017.

Collaborating with our other units, the united JBS family stands as the largest animal protein company globally. With production platforms and facilities across countries such as the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay, we have a dedicated team of over 200,000 individuals striving for excellence in everything we do.

From our humble beginnings as a small, family-owned beef company founded by José Batista Sobrinho (JBS) in the beautiful savannas of Goiás, Brazil, in 1953, we have transformed into a global leader in the protein industry. Throughout our journey, we have remained guided by our core values: Determination, Humility, Discipline, Availability, Sincerity, Simplicity, and Ownership.

These values have propelled us from a single packing plant in South America to becoming the foremost provider of meat protein worldwide. They will continue to be the foundation of our success as we navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities of the 21st century. With the global population projected to reach over 9 billion by 2050, the world’s needs are expanding rapidly.

Our collective mission is to meet the growing demand for nutritious, safe, and affordable food in a sustainable manner that respects our planet’s resources and secures a prosperous future for generations to come. The JBS team is committed to tackling this monumental task, and we invite you to join us on this journey. Together, we can make a difference.
