JBS S.A. (JBS), one of the world's largest meat processing company, ranks 30th out of 38 companies. It discloses less information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers across all themes, and no information on the theme of recruitment. The company does not seem to have improved its performance and disclosure since 2016, which due to a strengthened methodology led to a score decrease. KnowTheChain identified one allegation of forced labor in the company's supply chain. The company provided a public response to the allegation, explaining why it used the supplier (it was not included on the Brazilian government's list of companies known to use slave labor) and that it has ceased sourcing from the supplier, but it does not disclose remedy outcomes for impacted workers. The company has an opportunity to improve its performance and disclosure on the themes of recruitment, worker voice, and monitoring.
