JBS invests in Grand Island plant

The 107,000-square foot expansion is expected to be completed in 2021.

JBS USA is investing $95 million in an expansion at its Grand Island, Nebraska, beef processing plant. The project includes animal handling facilities, a temperature-controlled harvest floor and facility reconfiguration designed to improve team member experience, food safety and product quality.

The 107,000-square-foot expansion has already begun and is anticipated to be completed in early 2021. Operations at Grand Island will continue uninterrupted throughout the project.

JBS Grand Island partners with more than 670 local producers to export U.S. beef to more than 30 countries around the world, including Canada, Chile, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Mexico and Singapore, under such signature brands as 1855 Black Angus, Swift and Swift Black Angus.

“JBS Grand Island has been a standard-bearer for American beef for over half a century,” said Zack Ireland, Grand Island Plant Manager. “Our team sends the best U.S. beef products the country has to offer to customers both domestically and globally.”

Originally built in 1965 by Swift & Company, the Grand Island beef facility became a JBS USA plant in 2007. The plant produces nearly 1 billion pounds of beef and beef products each year.
