BRAZIL, São Paulo. JBS has invested R$ 60 mill. in expanding its plant in Jaguariúna to raise production of Seara Gourmet smoked Bologna sausage, designed for the domestic market, by 67%.
The new area at the factory comes on stream in February, and the Company’s investment has created 60 new job positions, all of which have already been filled. The plant currently has 580 employees working in three shifts. Ricardo Santini, Seara’s Prepared Foods industrial director, explains that the investment was directed at the structure of the factory which, in addition to Bologna sausage also produces pepperoni, as well as for purchasing more modern equipment. “The plant is strategically located to both receive raw materials and inputs, and to supply those regions where demand for the product is highest. We hope to continue our growth trajectory in the premium segment in the search for a greater market share”, he explains.
