São Paulo, September 6, 2019 – On Wednesday (4), in New York, JBS held a presentation for a group of 100 analysts and investors at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The goal was to show the market that the Company is well-positioned to take advantage of growing global demand for protein, as well as to reinforce strategies to accelerate its transformation into a company with value-added products and brands. The Company is prioritizing growth in regions where it is already present.
“JBS is a global company with geographic diversification and several types of protein with production scale. We are leaders or vice-leaders in different types of proteins, being able to serve the world’s leading consumer markets,” said Gilberto Tomazoni, JBS Global’s CEO.
According to the CEO, the company is rapidly advancing products and solutions that create value by meeting the main demands of different markets and profiles. “We do not work focused on increasing our market share. The market share of all our businesses is a natural consequence of value creation and the fact that we are the preferred company of clients and consumers. If we are gaining market share, it is because we are delivering what they want and need, with great quality,” explains Tomazi.
JBS presented its pillars of innovation and discussed its efforts to track the generation of digital consumers leading the transformation of retail. Through partnerships with its clients, the Company can access end consumers and offer products and services that are increasingly aligned with their expectations and market trends. In addition, in order to enable teams to develop new products, as JBS believes that technology helps increase its competitiveness, the Company has invested in process development, factory modernization and other initiatives, including the creation of the Global Innovation Team and the construction of the JBS Global Innovation Center.
At the event, the Company also highlighted its sustainability initiatives, including consolidated sustainability policies, ranging from social responsibility to environmental aspects, with global goals for each specific market. In addition, JBS uses the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals platform as an important benchmark for its initiatives in this area, and it will continue to lead initiatives throughout the value chain to foster sustainable production practices and strengthen the industry.
As the world’s population is expected to increase by 2.8 billion people by 2050, animal protein consumption should grow by 70%, according to the World Resources Institute. JBS’s global platform, highly qualified team and ability to improve its performance and integrate acquisitions will enable the Company to have great opportunities in the face of this growing demand. “The market is favorable; we have an experienced team; and this is the best moment in our history. Our goal is to increase our margin and revenue, focusing on operational excellence, innovation and organic and inorganic growth,” concludes Gilberto Tomazoni.
