Our History

The origin of JBS’s history takes back to 1953, when its founder, José Batista Sobrinho, started the operations in a small plant with capacity for processing five cattle per day, in the city of Anápolis, Goiás, in the Brazilian Midwest region.

Since the beginning of this long journey, the Company has built strategic partnerships, evolved in processes, and counted on the work from thousands of Team Members, who help achieve the JBS Mission every day.
