Sao Paulo, September 17, 2018 – Last Monday, (10), JBS was awarded the “Company that Best Communicates with Journalists” plaque in the Livestock category. Organized by the Communications Study Center (Cecom) and the Negócios da Comunicação magazine, the award acknowledges the quality of companies’ relationships with journalists and the wider market. It also focuses on the treatment companies dispense to media professionals in terms of access, availability and ease of checking business, industry and general information.


Every year, Cecom sends out a questionnaire to 25 thousand journalists across the country and they each choose three companies in 30 categories with whom they have a good media relationship. The goal of the initiative is to encourage good relationships between companies and the media and help provide better quality information and greater transparency in communications.


This is JBS’s seventh award in eight years. The award ceremony was held at the Company-School Integration Center Theater (CIEE) in Sao Paulo.
