Our Communities

JBS USA is committed to giving back to our communities in which we live and work. We strive to make a positive difference in our neighborhoods, for our team members and their families and our customers. We recognize the social responsibility of being a major employer, and we understand that behind every team member is a family, for whom they provide and in every city where we do business there is a community, to which we contribute.
