About Minerva Foods

Unidade Industrial

One of the leading producers and sellers of beef, leather, live cattle exports and cattle byproducts in South America, Minerva Foods is among Brazil’s three largest exporters, selling its products to some 100 countries, as well as processing beef, pork and poultry products.

Minerva Foods‘ history pictures its consistent, sustainable growth over the years. The Company’s growth is intertwined with the history of cattle raising in Brazil - the Vilela de Queiroz family was an active participant in the development of the sector in the country, being recognized for excellence in raising and transporting cattle.

In 1992, the Group began to invest in the industrialization of beef and beef products, offering high quality meat.

Minerva Foods currently has daily slaughter capacity of over 11,500 head of cattle and beef deboning capacity of 2,240 tons. The Company is present in the states of São Paulo, Tocantins, Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso do Sul, Goiás, Rondônia, Santa Catarina, Espírito Santo, Pará and in the Federal District, as well as in Paraguay and Uruguay, operating ten slaughter and deboning plants and eight distribution centers that serve nearly 1,000 Brazilian cities and more than 25,000 points of sale.

In addition to its operational units in South America, Minerva Foods also has commercial offices in Russia, Lebanon, Iran, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Chile, Colombia and the United States to provide differentiated service to its customers in these regions.

Minerva Foods currently holds a privileged position in the international market, thanks to the following factors: modern units certified for export, meeting the quality standards of the most demanding markets; an extensive portfolio of products; the capability to customize its products; and the prestige and recognition of the Minerva Foods brand. These factors are proof of our philosophy: to always guarantee the quality of the products that are appreciated the world over.
