JBS USA to purchase US beef packing plants
Nebraska, Idaho facilities part of deal to buy XL properties in Canada
Once the deal is completed, JBS USA will take ownership of a beef packing plant in Omaha, Neb., that can process 1,100 head of cattle per day, and another plant in Nampa, Idaho, that is currently idle. The company said on April 4 that it has no immediate plans to reopen the Idaho facility.
The Nebraska and Idaho plants are part of an agreement where JBS Food Canada purchased XL properties in Brooks and Calgaray, Alberta. JBS completed the acquisition of the Canadian properties in January.
