Tyson do Brasil appointed Vítor Hugo Brandalise as its new president. He will replace Josten Macedo, who left the company in late May.

Brandalise, an agronomist by profession, has been with Tyson since September 2008 when the company entered the Brazilian market after buying Macedo Agroindustrial, Avita and Frangobras.

Tyson facilities in Brazil are located in San Jose, Itaiópolis and Campo Mourão.
