Building on ongoing sustainability and social responsibility efforts, JBS USA and Pilgrim’s, American-based food companies, announced plans today to invest $3.5 million in Minnesota to help local communities respond to coronavirus and invest in the future. The investment is part of a new, national $50 million initiative called Hometown Strong that adds to commitments JBS USA and Pilgrim’s have made this year to protect employees and ensure their job security amid the global pandemic. “The rural towns and communities where we live and work are the key to our success, and we are proud of our role as a large employer in Worthington and Pipestone,” said Bob Krebs, President of JBS USA Pork, which includes the pork facilities in Worthington and Pipestone. “We are grateful to work with local producers, local businesses and our communities to deliver high-quality pork to Americans across the country.”
