Brazilian meat giant JBS has acquired TriOak Foods to tighten control over its supply chain.

JBS said in a brief statement to the market (December 2) that TriOak Foods will “ensure access to a consistent supply of premium pork” through its facilities based in Iowa and Illinois.

The deal between the pork producer and grain marketer was finalized for an undisclosed amount.

The company’s U.S. investment comes after JBS withdrew its bid to acquire full control of his 80% stake in U.S. poultry company Pilgrim’s Pride in February.

JBS’ US division has been TriOak Foods’ sole buyer of hogs for the past five years, and the company said the two companies have a “strong and long-term business relationship.”

TriOak Foods facilities include three feed mills, four grain elevators and a sow farm located in Iowa, Illinois, Colorado and Oklahoma. Agricultural real estate in Iowa is not part of the contract.

This complements JBS USA operations in the United States, including five pork manufacturing facilities in Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa and Minnesota. It also has a value-added meat processing facility in Minnesota, sow production facilities in Arkansas and Texas, and sow production contract facilities in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.

The company added in a statement today the deal would “allow JBS USA to ensure consistent supply and increased efficiencies, resulting in affordable, quality products for American consumers and new opportunities for both TriOak and JBS team members”.

JBS recently expanded its presence in the Middle East with the purchases of factories in factories are in Saudi Arabia and in the United Arab Emirates. The meat processing firm said the two sites are part of its strategy to expand its presence in the manufacturing and distribution of prepared foods, with the intention of “becoming a leader” in the Halal market.

And at the beginning of the year, it bolstered its presence in Australia, acquiring pork processor Rivalea. JBS said the deal made it “the leader in pork processing in the country”.
