About Pilgrim's Pride

The second-largest chicken producer worldwide, Pilgrim’s Pride offers chicken products to 100 countries.

Products & Services

Pilgrim’s presents a chicken recipe and product for breakfast, lunch, and dinner occasions. The company’s products encompass various fresh, fully cooked, ready to cook, and frozen chicken goods. Fresh products encompass boneless skinless chicken breasts, tenderloins, skinless breast with rib meat, whole marinated chicken, and thin sliced breasts. Fully cooked products range from frozen restaurant wings to seasoned chicken chunks while ready to cook products include breast strips, sliders, and other individually frozen meals. Individually frozen products are similar to fresh chicken parts, but are packaged frozen instead of fresh. Pilgrim’s is known as a vertical food company, involved in every process of its meat production.


In 1945, brothers, Lonnie and Aubrey Pilgrim, formed a feed store. The store’s business grew because it gave away chicks along with the feed it marketed. In 2009 the company was purchased by JBS USA Holding, a large food company. Serving more than 5,000 customers, today Pilgrim’s foods are found in Wal-Mart Stores and Wendy’s locations as well as the Kentucky Fried Chicken chain.

Pilgrim’s remains part of JBS and is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under ticker symbol PPC. The company employs approximately 38,000 people around the world. Pilgrim’s offers opportunities in production, occupational health, and other corporate jobs.
