The main objective of Jerónimo Martins Agro-Alimentar is to have direct access to the supply sources of strategic products, thereby guaranteeing the Group's internal needs, namely in the areas of dairy products, beef and aquaculture.
In 2014, Jerónimo Martins started a new business
with the creation of JMA, which has operations in the areas of
dairy products, beef and aquaculture.
The operational activity started with the launch of the first
two businesses: the Dairy factory in Portalegre - with an annual
production of 40 million litres - and the Angus Beef Cattle
Fattening Unit, in Manhente, Barcelos, with a capacity for 1,000
In 2016, an aquaculture operation took off in Sines for the
production of seabass and a partnership agreement was set up in
Madeira Island for the future production of seabream.
Also in 2016, the construction of a new factory for dairy
products began in Portalegre, which is to be completed in mid-2017.
This modern facility will enable the efficient production of high
quality milk and dairy products.
