Chinese meat processing giant seeks expansion

WH Group Ltd, owner of Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork producer, is said to be seeking for U.S. and European beef and poultry assets so as to intensify competition with meatpacking rivals Tyson Foods and JBS. Although the company is seeking to diversify its portfolio, it says no deals are yet on the table and the targets have not been disclosed.
