JBS looks for meaty target


After missing out on Hillshire Brands and Smithfield Foods, Brazilian food giant JBS S.A. (JBSAY) has a narrower list of acquisition targets, according to Deutsche Bank.

Oscar Meyer (KRFT) and Hormel Foods (HRL) are two big-target options for JBS, while Maple Leaf Foods MFI and Sanderson Farms SAFM are on the lighter side.
