The American operations of the Jamaica BroiIers Group (JBG) led the performance in the last quarter that ended January 28, 2023.

JBG USA recorded a segment result of J$2.8 billion, which is J$958 million or 53 per cent above last year’s performance when normalised for a one-off other income of J$584 million reported in 2022 results. Total revenue for American operations is up 16 per cent over the prior year’s nine-month period.

This rise was primarily driven by the increase in production and sales in The Best Dressed Chicken line of products. The domestic operations of the Jamaica-based conglomerate reported a segment result of J$5.5 billion, J$2.6 billion or 88 per cent above the last year’s segment results.
