JPG is a company founded in 1915, based on the concept of cooperatives within the same Entre Ríos Province in Argentina. Although originally dedicated to the production and processing of rice, it has transformed itself over the years into a food production and processing company.

In 1925, it started to produce wheat and corn, investing in storage besides grain production. Until 1932 the company was exclusively focused on grain production.

In 1938, JPG faced difficult times, then deciding to invest in cattle raising and meat processing, besides production, storage and genetic development of grains. JPG developed the entire value chain for the meat business, from breeding and farming to meat processing in its own slaughterhouses.

In 1948 JPG cattle supplied its own slaughterhouses and third-party ones. That increases demand of its grain production business, not only for export now, but also for internal consumption.

In 1955 it merged with a large exporting slaughterhouse, opening branches in Uruguay and pushing the company to new heights both nationally and internationally.

In 1962, 1965 and 1968 investments started in railways, always foreseeing it as the future of national transportation besides being a present need.

In 1969 there was a rebound in the production of Rice, Wheat, Corn and Sunflower, and the company incorporates the animal protein business (Chicken, Meat, Pork).

In 1972 and 1974 the company invested in logistics and transportation. It was developed to support not only its grain production business, but also the oil sector, which was a key supplier to JPG operations.

In 1982 there was highlighted focus on developing the dairy business in the group.

In 1986 for the first time JPG launched its first developments in forestry, planting, cropping, transporting and producing raw materials for papermaking and wood agglomerates.

After its second reorganization in 1994, it incorporated the production of Soy and Sunflower, with additional storage facilities.

In 1999 JPG created its first passenger transportation operation and, in the same year, launches the candy and sweets businesses.

In 2002 it started production of several types of processed foods like dry pasta, instant pasta, instant soups, instant coffee and chocolate powder.

In 2005 JPG made its first inroads into the Automotive sector, aiming at the development and production of electric cars. The first prototypes were developed with Chinese partners, and JPG internally developed designs and sustainable development principles.

In 2014 the first phenolic panel factories became online in the northern part of the country, producing today for the entire country.

In 2016 phenolic panels started being exported to European and Asian markets.

In 2018 JPG went through a third restructuring process, now aiming at developing the JPG brand at global level. First, we established JPG United States office and Hong Kong. Now we’re in the process of developing Brazil, Uruguay, Spain and Dubai.

We are now seeking global reach, based on the very same mainstream principles and making sure we maintain our supply position in the internal markets. Today JPG is going through a restructuring process to open itself to the world.

Today we also offer solutions and services that address the needs of producers. We advise on harvest sales, price negotiation and business management.

We help our clients in managing their operations, carrying out the administrative tasks associated with document handling to speed up settlements in a quick and transparent manner.

Today JPG stands for Food Production and Processing, Services, Storage, Logistics and Transportation.
