JBS pitches in to help bushfire victims, firefighters

Beef Central, 11/01/2013


JBS Australia has provided 1500kg of meat product for Tasmanian bushfire victims, fire-fighters and essential service workers combating the fires across the State.

JBS chief operating officer for southern Australia, Sam McConnell, said the fires had been devastating, with people losing homes and local communities shattered.

The donation of beef, lamb, chicken and sausages came from JBS's Longford processing facility and nearby retail butcher shop.

"Our JBS Longford and DR Johnston butchering and wholesale team have worked hard to prepare and put the product together in ready-to-use packs to get it urgently to those in need," Mr McConnell said.

The donation has been coordinated through the Tasmanian Deputy Premier, Bryan Green's office and the Salvation Army in Hobart. The product will be used and distrbuted to priority locations by the Tasmanian Department of Health.
