Possible Merger of BRF S.A. and Marfrig Global Foods S.A. of Brazil


On May 30th, the two companies filed with authorities in Brazil to complete a merger. If the transaction is completed, the combination will represent a significant force in animal protein since Marfrig is a major producer and exporter of poultry and BRF S.A. has extensive beef and pork capacity.

In December 2018, Marfrig acquired the majority of the Argentine assets of BRF in addition to a unit in Mato Grosso State.

Marfrig is the owner of National Beef Packing Company LLC of Kansas City, MO.
