Filipe Pacheco – Bloomberg, 07/01/2016
Brazilian police searched the offices of JBS SA, the world’s biggest producer of beef and chicken, as part of a corruption probe that has shaken Latin America’s largest country.
Federal police officers were seen at the headquarters JBS in Sao Paulo, local media reported. A company spokesman confirmed the search but said that JBS itself wasn’t the target of the operation and that no arrest warrants were issued for its executives. Instead, police was seeking documents related to Eldorado Brasil Celulose SA, part of the J&F conglomerate that also controls JBS, he said.
A press officer for Eldorado wasn’t immediately available for comment.
