The Jamaica Broilers Group has expanded its business in the US through the purchase of a feed mill in the state of Georgia.

JBG has bought a feed mill and related assets from Crystal Farms, a US firm producing and marketing eggs and feed.

The deal, struck for an undisclosed sum, was completed on 30 August, JBG said in a stock-exchange filing.

JBG, based in St Catherine in south-eastern Jamaica, is a vertically-integrated poultry business, with operations from hatching eggs to selling consumer-facing products. The company’s brands include The Best Dressed Chicken and Reggae Jammin’.

The group has operations in Jamaica, Haiti and the US, where it has a presence in Georgia, Florida, Arkansas, Iowa and Pennsylvania. 

JBG’s last expansion move in the US came last October, when it snapped up a hatchery in Pennsylvania.
