JBS Canada breaks ground on a new distribution centre in Brooks, Alta. Construction on the $80 million centre is expected to finish in Q4 2025. The centre is expected to increase JBS Canada’s shipping capacity by 40 per cent.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith and JBS USA CEO Wesley Batista Filho attended the ground-breaking ceremony along with the County of Newell councillors Holly Johnson, Greg Skriver, Neil Johnson and Reve Doerksen, Brooks Mayor John Petrie, MP Martin Shields, and agriculture minister RJ Sigurdson.

“Our team members are the reason that JBS Canada is able to make such a substantial investment in Brooks,” said Celio Fritche, president of JBS Canada in a LinkedIn post. “Thank you, for your hard work, dedication, and for working to feed Canada each and every day.”
