“Sukarne” is a Mexican multinational corporation based in Culiacan, Mexico that operates in the food protein industry. It’s part of a family of companies under Grupo Sukarne. [2]

The company annually exports the largest percentage of beef, pork, and chicken in Mexico, with at least 76% of the market. In 2010, the company had estimated world-wide beef sales of US$883 Million [3], after an export growth of 60% in just one year. [4]

The company makes a wide variety of animal-based and prepared products at its food processing plants. Currently, Grupo Sukarne generates more than 7,000 direct jobs, serves more than 40,000 customers, and maintains operations with companies in 18 countries. Its chain of production includes more than 80,000 agricultural and livestock providers. [5]

Sukarne is also one of the largest North American marketers of value-added chicken, beef and pork to retail grocers, broad line food service distributors and national fast food and full service restaurant chains, fresh beef and pork, frozen and fully cooked chicken, and case-ready beef and pork. It supplies many of the largest players in the food industry, including franchise restaurants, Walmart, HEB, and small restaurant businesses. [6]

Sukarne's current chairman is Jesus Vizcarra Calderon. [7]
