JBS® and Pilgrim’s® recognize that the challenge of feeding a growing planet cannot be met simply by using the agricultural practices of today. Importantly, we also know that the we cannot accomplish our mission to be the best if we simply rest on our past accomplishments. We know that sustainability means doing better today than we did yesterday so that we have an opportunity to improve in the future. Sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement. Rather than a destination, sustainability is a never-ending journey that requires the use of the latest technologies and innovations to meet the awesome challenges before us.
Most consumers are unfamiliar with the modern agricultural system and the tremendous benefits it provides them and their families. We are proud to be a part of the most modern, efficient, safe and globally-dispersed food system in the history of mankind. And while we have accomplished so much, empowering so many people around the world to improve their livelihoods through the consumption of nutritious, affordable protein – we know there is so much more to do. Leveraging the latest technologies and innovations, channeling the spirit of Norman Borlaug and transparently communicating why we do what we do to our customers and consumers; we are confident we can meet the great challenge of our time – feeding our growing global population in a sustainable manner that responsibly meets their needs today, while empowering the next generation to responsibly meet their needs in the future.
