JAMAICA - Jamaica Broilers Group (JBG) has announced its plans to acquire Hamilton's Smoke House, local producer and processor of smoked meats.

The move is designed to strengthen its presence in the processed-meats segment.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, according to a report in the Jamaica Gleaner.

Ian Parsard, senior vice-president of operations and finance told The Gleaner that the move will give the poultry company a more solid footing in the pork market.

"This move means a number of things, among them the coming together of two locally grown companies and brands which are known for exceptional quality products," Mr Parsard told the Financial Gleaner.
