Message from Global CEO - Special thanks for JBS Team

My dear colleagues!

2020 was not an easy year. We all had to adapt and overcome. Throughout the year, we have been concerned about the health of our family and friends as we faced a global pandemic. But I know that for many, the challenges were even greater. In some cases, leading to irreversible losses ...

But it´s important to know that while this was a difficult year, we have done our job and lived up to our values. We should be proud of how JBS responded to the pandemic. When the world needed us most, we answered the call. We all did. You did. And we continue to feed the world despite all challenges.

But not just that. We also strived to do more and give back to society - building hospitals, feeding the vulnerable, and investing in our communities. Together we helped save lives! I don't know how many companies in our industry around the world that has done more to be on society´s side during these pandemic times than JBS.

This was only possible because our priority was our people. All our decisions always began with the health and safety of our team. Our people have and will always come first!

As I reflect on this year, I am so thankful for this team and what we have accomplished. So I thank you for everything you've done. Thank you for your commitment, determination and your deep sense of responsibility to our mission. You are the reason why JBS is such a fantastic company.

And please, on my behalf, thank your family and those who support you. Without them, nothing would be possible.

I am honored to be part of this team of brave men and women. I am proud of how we responded to this pandemic and extremely grateful to you.

So, whatever comes, we will be together in 2021, taking care of each other and working to improve the lives of billions of people around the world.

Now is the moment for well-deserved rest for all of us, together with family and dear friends. Even though we may not be able to be with all of them personally, all that we do is for those that we love!

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a new year filled with health, peace and prosperity!

Thank you very much.
