CHICAGO (Reuters) – The North American arm of Brazilian meatpacker JBS SA (OTC:) is closing its U.S. plant-based foods business Planterra Foods after about two years, the company said on Monday.
JBS will focus on its plant-based operations in Brazil and Europe, said Nikki Richardson, spokesperson for JBS USA. Those operations “continue to gain market share and expand their respective customer bases,” she said.
Colorado-based Planterra sold plant-based food under the Ozo brand and in July said it was “the official plant-based protein” of the Chicago Cubs baseball team.
