With pork and turkey from the US, flour from Haiti, and sugar from Argentina, Seaboard has a lot on its plate. The diversified agribusiness and transportation firm has operations in some 45 countries in the Americas, the Caribbean, and Africa. Seaboard sells its pork and poultry in the US and abroad. Overseas it trades grain (wheat, soya), operates power plants and feed and flour mills, and grows and refines sugar cane. Seaboard owns a shipping service for containerized cargo between the US, the Caribbean, and South America; it has shipping terminals in Miami and Houston and a fleet of about 20 vessels (two owned, the rest chartered) and ships to ports worldwide. Seaboard is run by descendants of founder Otto Bresky.
