JBS USA is acquiring certain assets from TriOak Foods, a Midwest-based pork producer. Under the agreement, JBS will be obtaining TriOak Foods’ three feed mills, four grain elevators, and sow operations in Iowa, Illinois, Colorado, and Oklahoma. TriOak Foods’ agricultural real estate assets in Iowa are not included in the deal.

JBS USA has been the exclusive customer of TriOak market hogs since 2017. No financial details regarding the transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, have been announced.

TriOak Foods, a family operation established in 1951, includes live pork production, grain merchandising, and fertilizer marketing. TriOak Foods, a leader in on-farm sustainability, operates hog farms that are compliant with California’s Proposition 12 rule and include multiple open pen gestation facilities and farms.
