About Us

Over 85 years of experience in providing delicious, high quality meat products throughout the United States.

What started out as a sliced ham company in 1932 has expanded into a business that offers a multitude of product lines including premium bacon, sliced deli meat, quality deli counter ham, cooked ribs and canned ham. In 2017, Plumrose USA was acquired by JBS USA, and significant investments are being made to grow our business.

Headquartered in beautiful Greeley, Colorado, JBS® USA processes, prepares, packages and delivers fresh, further-processed and value-added beef, pork, lamb and poultry products for sale to customers in more than 105 countries on six continents. The company employs more than 78,000 team members and operates more than 100 facilities in the United States, Australia, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. The story of JBS® began in 1953 in Brazil, when José Batista Sobrinho (whose initials now form the name of our company) started out processing less than five head of cattle per day. Through determination, discipline, simplicity, years of hard work and a few acquisitions along the way, JBS has grown from a small, family-owned business into the world’s leading provider of quality meat protein, leather and sustainable co-products.

Our Brands

Plumrose USA’s past, present and future success depends on our quality brands.

We take pride in our legacy of delivering quality and value through our signature brands (Plumrose and DAK). And, we are proud to launch two new premium brands to meet today’s consumer needs (Naked Meats and Knockout Meats). As the company grows, we are continuing to invest behind culinary-led innovation and marketing support for our great brands.


Naked Meats

Naked Meats is a new line of all natural, nitrate & nitrite free and antibiotic free deli meats that are first in the category to provide full traceability to the regional farm where the animals were raised with care. Made from only the most premium cuts, Naked Meats are slow cooked for a tender and juicy taste experience!


Knockout Meats

Knockout Meats is a new line of deliciously bold, pre-cooked premium ribs that deliver knockout flavor in minutes. Made from hand-selected cuts and seasoned with our signature spices, Knockout Meats are bursting with unapologetic flavor. Portioned into two individually packaged servings for ultimate flexibility – Knockout Meats makes meal time simple and delicious!



Plumrose was first introduced in the United States back in 1932. The items offered under this brand have national distribution and have expanded to include a vast array of packaged deli meats, bacon, canned hams and precooked rib items.



DAK established itself as a quality brand in 1947 and is primarily sold in club stores throughout the country. Whether you see a DAK ham behind the counter at your local supermarket or pick up a 3lb package of bacon at a warehouse store, you can be assured of the highest quality products.


We are always looking for great talent across all functions and all levels.
