JBS recently announced it is investing about 250 million reals ($52.1 million) to build a feed factory in Seberi, in the Northwestern region of Rio Grande do Sul. The new facility is expected to generate up to 110 direct jobs and help boost pork production in 36 nearby municipalities.

With the increase in feed supply, the integrated producers will be able to double pork breeding by the end of 2023, making the region the main producer of pig farming in Rio Grande do Sul. Located on the same land as the Seberi industrial plant, the new feed factory occupies a total area of 63,000 square meters (m²), with 48,000 m² of constructed area, and will have the capacity to produce 50,000 tons of the input per month. The plant will supply more than 300 integrated swine-producing families of Seara.

JBS said it is betting on the potential of the Seberi region to expand Seara's pork processing in Rio Grande do Sul. Currently, the company has more than 40 feed factories in operation in the South, Southeast, and Central-West regions of the country.

The construction of this new feed factory is part of the investments announced by JBS in April 2021, of 1.7 billion reals, in Rio Grande do Sul. The investments made in the 2021-2023 triennium include expansion and improvements in units in seven cities, among them Seberi, increasing the production of natural protein and prepared foods to meet the demands of the external and internal markets.
