About 400 new jobs, one additional work shift and increased productivity, up by 50 per cent, in the manufacturing plant. JBS are investing again in Mato Grosso, while boosting business in the slaughterhouse located in Barra do Garças, which is one of the 36 manufacturing sites of Carnes division. “Increased production, which also hangs on process optimization and additional work shift – points out in his release Renato Costa, president of JBS Carnes -, will enable us to deal with very relevant markets, such as the Asian ones”. Since the Lava Jato scandal broke out, competitors attacked the Brazilian multinational corporation aiming to gain shares of domestic provisions. JBS fight back now to safeguard leadership.
