Marfrig ends talks with Bertin
Brazilian meat and poultry processor will not merge with rival Bertin.
If the merger had taken place, the new company would have become Brazil's largest meat processor, overtaking JBS.
Marfrig is the world's fourth-largest meat processor, and in the last two years has become a major poultry processor in Brazil and Europe, through the purchase of other companies. Marfrig is now Brazil's fifth-largest chicken processor, and it also owns Moy Park's poultry processing operations in Europe.
