Brazilian meat processor Marfrig is set buy a domestic turkey business owned by France-based poultry giant Doux.

Marfrig said today (23 June) that the BRL65m (US$32.4m) marked its entry into Brazil’s turkey market and was in line with its “diversification” strategy.

The acquisition includes one slaughter plant in the city of Caxias do Sul, a feed plant, incubation facility and four farms.
