2021 Sustainability Update

Bringing More to the Table

JBS USA feeds millions of people around the world every day, and we’re committed to doing so in a way that is both good for you and good for the planet. As one of the world’s largest food companies, we have the opportunity, and the obligation to set commitments that will propel us forward and lead sustainable change.


Our mission — to be the best in all that we do — guides our every move. Our investments to achieve net-zero, build attractive communities and enable team members and their families to advance their education all add up to one thing: making good on our mission.

The decisions we make today will have a lasting impact — we hope for generations. By bringing more to the table than great-tasting food, we can contribute to solutions that we all crave, no matter where we live: sustainable food production, sustainable communities and a sustainable future for us all.
