Beef Processing/Packing Market

Goals

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.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Wonder can continue the research and provide a company profile for these beef packers/processors. We can start by researching American Food Groups, Greater Omaha Packing, Caviness Beef Packers, and Kenosha Beef International Ltd. (Birchwood Foods). For each company, we can provide what niches they are filling, the location of their headquarters, their facility locations, their facility types, how they distribute their meat (direct-to-consumer or other methods), their clients (for example, restaurants or other consumers), how they source their beef, their share of the market (this will most likely be calculated), their ownership structure, and how long they have been in business.
We can also focus on meatpackers that provide beef next to other meats. We can start by providing a company profile of SYSCO Corp., Smithfield Foods Inc., Hormel Foods Corp., and OSI Group LLC. For each company, we can provide what niches they are filling, the location of their headquarters, their facility locations (and mention if there are facilities that exclusively focus on beef), their facility types, how they distribute their meat (direct-to-consumer or other methods), their clients (for example, restaurants or other consumers), how they source their beef, their share of the market (this will most likely be calculated), their ownership structure, and how long they have been in business.
