6. It was a huge surprise! Any chance for people to be exposed to the information is important!

I hope it will happen during my lifetime when the owners of the world's largest meat producers, and destroyers of the environment, the Batista brothers, will finally be brought down, broken, their empire of greed and cruelty erased from the surface of what's left of the planet.

Their Wikipedia, concerning US operations people might recognize instantly:

2007–2010: US acquisitions
In 2007 JBS went through with a US$225m acquisition of U.S. firm Swift & Company,[8] which was the third largest U.S. beef and pork processor, renamed as JBS USA. It leads the world in slaughter capacity, at 51.4 thousand head per day, and continues to focus on production operations, processing, and export plants, nationally and internationally.[citation needed] With the new acquisition, JBS entered the pork market, to end the year as the third largest producer and processor of this type of meat in the United States. The acquisition expanded the company's portfolio to include rights to the worldwide use of the Swift brand.[citation needed]

The next year, JBS acquired Smithfield Foods' beef business. It was renamed JBS Packerland.[citation needed]

On 31 August 2010 it was announced that the company had acquired 64% of Pilgrim's Pride for a bid of US$800 million, establishing JBS's position in the chicken production industry,[9] but currently the company owns 75.3% of Pilgrim's Pride.[citation needed]

JBS Names Founder José Batista Sobrinho as CEO, Two Sons in Jail
September 18, 2017 02:30 PM

JBS SA’s board voted on Sept. 17 to name company founder José Batista Sobrinho as the chief executive officer, following a week of turmoil for the business named for his initials.

José, 84, replaces his son, Wesley, Sr., 47, who was arrested by federal police in Brazil for alleged insider trading four days earlier. His other son, Joesley, 44, is also suspected of insider trading and gave himself up to police for not meeting the terms of a plea deal the sons organized with the government.


(Apparently a mere inconvenience, after all...)

Thanks for giving this information a bigger range, Ponietz!
