Grand Island Beef Production Facility Makes Investments in Animal Handling and Welfare, Food Safety and Product Quality

In May 2019, we announced a $95 million expansion project at our Grand Island, Neb., beef production facility that includes new, improved animal handling facilities, a state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled harvest floor and facility reconfiguration designed to improve team member experience, food safety and product quality.

We believe the 107,000 square-foot expansion and facility enhancements better position our company to sustainably meet evolving customer and consumer expectations for high-quality, great-tasting U.S. beef products.

Located in the heart of American cattle country in central Nebraska, JBS USA Grand Island partners with more than 670 local producers to export U.S. beef to more than 30 countries around the world, including Canada, Chile, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Mexico and Singapore, under such signature brands as 1855 Black Angus©, Swift© and Swift Black Angus©. The expansion project will allow the company to strategically capitalize on increased international demand forecasts for high-quality U.S. beef and value-added beef products.
