Meat producer JBS has invested BRL 13 million ($3.7 million) to expand two of its meat production facilities in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

JBS says that the investment will pay for the expansion of the hamburger production lines at its facilities in Lins and Osasco, as the company needs the extra production capacity to effectively serve its clients in the foodservice industry.

BRL 9 million ($2.6 million) will be invested in the Lins plant – and JBS claims this will expand the output of the plant by approximately 30% – while the remaining BRL 4 million ($1.1 million) will be invested in the Osasco plant.

130 new employees will also be hired by the company to help operate the Lins plant.

A statement from JBS said: “In addition to increasing production, the investments were also used to ensure the plants are able to maintain their high-quality standards and meet customers’ expectations.

“JBS plans to continue expanding its retail and foodservice operations through ongoing efficiency improvements.”
