Production Plants and Logistics

Minerva Foods’ deboning capacity is higher than its slaughter capacity, thereby ensuring flexibility in the production process, allowing it to process its own cattle, as well as carcasses acquired from third parties, thereby maximizing profitability, given that processing is the activity that adds most value to beef.

The Company’s 26 production units, as well as Minerva Fine Foods, are strategically located close to the main exporting ports and domestic markets, as well as its extensive network of cattle suppliers. The map below shows the geographical location of the Company’s industrial units and distribution centers, as well as its live cattle export office in Belém. .
