Frinal employs more than 1,200 workers and processes 120,000 birds per day. The company has been a player in the Brazilian poultry industry for 40 years offering cuts of chilled and frozen chicken.
Sáo Paulo-based JBS, already the world's largest meat processor, has claimed the top spot in poultry production through acquisitions. In September, JBS acquired Seara Brasil, a poultry processor once owned by Marfrig Alimentos in September 2013. The Seara Brasil transaction allowed JBS to surpass Springdale, Ark.-based Tyson Foods Inc. as the top poultry producer globally.
