JBS is a State sponsored Brazilian meat packer, and now the largest meat packer in the world, as well as the largest beef and poultry packer in the U.S. They are ruthless, sharing monopoly power with Tyson and Cargill over the world’s meat packing industry, it’s livestock suppliers and workers. Among many others, JBS owns the former Monfort/ConAgra plant in Greeley, Colorado. The same plant made infamous for its nearly 20 million pound E. coli recall in 2002.
I am reminded of how helpless we can become without a proper balance of power in a relationship.
