NI poultry firm Moy Park put up for sale by JBS
Moy Park, the Northern Ireland-based poultry business, has been put up for sale by its Brazilian owner.
JBS said it intended to sell the firm as part of a wider plan to raise about $6bn (£4.74bn).
JBS bought Moy Park from another Brazilian firm in 2015 for $1.5bn.
Moy Park - which has its headquarters in Craigavon, County Armagh - is one of Northern Ireland's largest firms, employing more than 9,000 people.
Janet McCollum, Moy Park chief executive, said: "Our priority remains business as usual - delivering outstanding quality, innovation and service to our customers and consumers.
"Moy Park is a successful and growing food business with a solid financial standing.
"I have no doubt that our success is due to the great strengths of this business - our exceptional people, innovation and performance."
