JBS® USA is a family of proud brands with rich traditions. JBS USA includes operations in the U.S., Mexico, Canada and Australia , including our plant in Beardstown . The diversified platform includes beef, pork, poultry, lamb, further processed and consumer ready protein offerings, hides, leather, variety meats and rendered products. Beardstown concentrates on pork production.
In partnership with JBS S.A., the Brazilian-based parent company, the united JBS family represents the largest animal protein company in the world with production platforms and facilities in countries including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay and more than 200,000 team members working hard every day to be the best in all they do.
From our humble beginnings as a small, family-owned beef company started by the founder, José Batista Sobrinho (JBS), in the rolling savannas of Goiás, Brazil, in 1953, to the evolution into the world leader in protein with operations all around the globe, JBS has been guided by the same core values.
Determination, Humility, Discipline, Availability, Sincerity, Simplicity and Ownership.
These values have led JBS from a single packing plant in South America, to the leading provider of meat protein in the world. And these values will continue to serve as our foundation and our strength as we venture through the 21st century — a century of challenge, but of even greater opportunity. The global population will reach a staggering 9+ billion by the year 2050, and as our world grows, so do the needs of her global citizens.
The collective challenge is to provide this growing world with the nutritious, safe, and affordable food it requires in a sustainable manner that respects our planet’s resources and secures a strong, prosperous course for future generations. The JBS team stands ready to meet this, the great challenge of our time.
