With each training cycle, training makes them curious and, more than anything, confident. They understand that this closer relationship is a plus and that they can speak their minds, ask questions and even complain. They are confident that all issues will be taken seriously and, above all, the entire team is available and transparent."

In the city of Ipumirim JBS received Corporate Citizen certification for two consecutive years, in 2018 and 2019. This program is part of the Novos Caminhos (New Paths) Program, benefiting minors living in shelters. In addition to taking classes at Senai, 2 or 3 days a week, they work at the Company on other days. In the project, they have theoretical and practical classes, in education as well as music, geared more toward routine day-to-day activities.”

I've worked with JBS for 25 years. During this time, there has always been some sort of training, on environment, animal welfare, vaccination, treatment matters, conversion. There is a whole project for us to adapt and be ready to produce."

The project has a very positive impact on the lives of participants and their families. Because someone with a disability has a physical, mental, intelectual or sensory impairment, which oftentimes comes along with other issues, this causes difficulties for them to be inserted in society. The Project is here to say otherwise: that people can have a job, can be part of society and can Interact with others."

The National Pact to Eradicate Slave Labour was created in 2005 as an initiative of the productive sector and civil society in an effort to provide responses to the challenge of human rights violations in production chains. We recently partnered with JBS and developed a vulnerability index to the occurrence of slave labor that will be of great help to companies, with efficient and effective information to help in the challenge of preventing and eradicating slave labor in production chains."

Within the Seara business, one highlight is the campaigns to raise awareness that we carry out along with all of our team members. We have a timeline that all of the units follow to get organized: we schedule meetings, during an entire week, doing countless activities, with involvement, interaction, learning and training. It's a time for us to pass along a very strong message of health and safety to our team members, so that they not only practice this at our units, but are also able to take this beyond our plants and to their homes."
Robison Raniere Martins Corporate Occupational Health and Safety Manager at Seara
Seventeen years ago, we started out with 13,000 birds, and now we have 160,000 housed. The last investment we made last year was to install solar energy to lower production costs. Our partnership with Seara first began with hogs, 40 years ago. Later, we started the aviaries. We've always had help from the Company with incentives."
Friendly Oil project goes far beyond collecting oil. This project has to do with people, education and the environment. Over these four years, the project has reached over 21,000 students, including children, youth, teens and even university students. There are over 217 collection points, among which are 47 schools and charity institutions. They learn that recycling is an act of love: love for the environment, love for others and love for future generations. Not to mention contributions to schools and hospitals, since all the money raised from the Friendly Oil project goes to improvements in the institutions."

For three years, Imaflora has been working with JBS to enhance monitoring of meat purchases coming from the Amazon as well as audits of Conduct Modification Agreements, which are done with the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office, other NGOs, meatpacking plants and retailers. Because JBS is the world’s largest animal protein company, it has this huge potential to positively impact on the entire sector, especially in the Amazon, monitoring its cattle purchases and ensuring less deforestation and elimination of slave labor in Brazil, and it even has the potential to bring all of these examples of projects to other biomes."

I've been in Canada for three and a half years. I started as a deboner and was promoted to monitor and then supervisor. In January 2020, I began to work in my new position as General Foreman. I was in the first JBS Without Borders group and everything was very new, but I had the support I needed from the Recruitment team and from people in other departments, who were even willing to help me on weekends."

I've been eating Swift products for around four years. I buy the brand because it has a standard of quality that I know is right for me. In my view, the Swift difference is the stores and the service the people provide. It's practically another part of my home."

The Araguaia League was an initiative to call on the region's livestock producers to take more of a leading role in environmental conservation and sustainable production. We are now working with JBS to develop the Araguaia Herd project, which also runs along these lines of constant promotion of sustainable intensification of livestock and working within environmental laws. Under this model, our challenge is to show consumers and the world that it is possible to have production in Mato Grosso with leading action by livestock producers spearheading this process."

JBS, through Seara and JBS Brasil, supports our selective collection and recycling programs, which should serve nearly 1 million new people per year.

On this farm, we work with collective pens; animals are together for much longer, in much larger pens. With this, we see improvements to their quality of life, with better results consequently. And, in addition to collective pens, we have a climate control system for sows and piglets."

Day-to-day, we seek to maximize results, optimizing the farm to be highly productive, creating satisfaction for our integrated producer."

We've been in Brazil since the end of 2018. From the first time we came to the plant, everyone told us: ‘come here,’ ‘let's do this,’ ‘let's eat dinner together.’ In this short time we've been working here, I think a family has been born at JBS: it is made up of Brazilians, Venezuelans and Haitians."
