The North American arm of Brazilian meatpacker JBS SA is closing its US plant-based foods business Planterra Foods after about two years, Reuters reported, citing the company on Monday.

JBS will focus on its plant-based operations in Brazil and Europe, said Nikki Richardson, spokesperson for JBS USA. Those operations "continue to gain market share and expand their respective customer bases," she said.

Colorado-based Planterra sold plant-based food under the Ozo brand and in July said it was "the official plant-based protein" of the Chicago Cubs baseball team.
