Corporate Profile

Minerva Foods is one of the South American leaders in the production and sale of fresh beef and its byproducts, as well as live cattle exports, and it also maintains operations in the beef, pork and poultry processing segments. The Company operates 17 slaughterhouses, 11 of which in Brazil, three in Paraguay, two in Uruguay and one in Colombia, with a combined slaughter capacity of 17,330 head of cattle per day. It also maintains a meat processing plant in Brazil - Minerva Fine Foods. The Company exports to more than 100 countries in five continents through eight sales offices and operates 11 distribution centers, 8 of which in Brazil, one in Paraguay, one in Chile and one in Colômbia.

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 17 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. .
