Research Outline

Beef Processing/Packing Market


To understand the competitive landscape in the beef processing/packing market beyond the big four (JBS, Cargill, Tyson and National Beef) and understand for each company what niches they are filling, their headquarters locations, their facility locations, their facility types, their distribution (direct-to-consumer, restaurants, etc.), how they source, their share of the market, ownership structure, and how long they have been in business.

Early Findings

Summary of Findings

  • During the initial hour of research, we focused on finding beef packers/processors.
  • We found information on the top meat packers and listed only those that focused only on beef. However, there are multiple meat packers that process a variety of meats that include beef and have provided 5 examples of such companies.
  • The time was too limited to list all the packers exclusively focused on beef.
  • Please note that the market share will most likely be triangulated using the net sales provided in this source if no readily available information is available.
