JBS SA, the largest beef exporter in the world, has agreed to buy Australian processed foods producer Primo Smallgoods for $1.25 Billion.

 Primo Smallgoods is a leading ham, sausage and bacon producer in Australia and New Zealand with five producing units, seven distribution centers and 30 retail stores.

 “This is an excellent opportunity to grow our business in Australia, given the high rates of annual growth in the category of food products and the ability to increase sales of Primo Group via exports,”said CEO of JBS Wesley Batista

 JBS is also acquiring AMSE02 Participações, which controls Grupo Big Frango in southern Brazil. Big Frango slaughters 460,000 every day in two factories, which are generating more than 1 billion reais annualy.

 JBS expects to reach AUD 30 million from this deal. The purchase is in line with JBS’s strategy of increasing business in value-added products rather than just exporting meats.
