Our People

Enable our team members to reach their unique potential.

Health & Safety

Taking care of business means taking care of each other through training, technology and best practices.

Team members in our processing plants use their hands every day— cutting meat, packaging food and performing other manual tasks. Ensuring all of these tasks are done in the safest manner is our utmost priority. We are committed to improving the health and safety of our employees by setting bold goals, building strategic communication and training systems, creating a safety culture and rewarding safety excellence. We aspire to zero work-related injuries.

When an incident occurs, we go straight to the source to collect data and analyze the root cause of an incident. This allows us to make informed decisions to better reduce health and safety exposures that team members encounter. Once we better understand why an incident occurred, our health and safety team along with operation leaders can create proactive solutions. In this way, we look at safety not as an event to which we must react, but rather as part of the process in which we conduct our everyday operations.

and Compliance

Our ethics are guided by our Core Values, Code of Conduct, Team Behaviors (also known as our 5Cs). Our policies and practices follow the human rights principles set forth in the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization’s Fundamental Principles and Labor Standards.

Inclusion & Diversity

We embrace the diversity of our team members, customers, stakeholders and consumers—their unique backgrounds, experiences, thoughts and talents.

We are committed to cultivating an inclusive workplace that supports and empowers all team members, regardless of their race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or any other protected status.

& Retention

We succeed as a company by recruiting the best talent — and creating a welcoming and rewarding place to work.

We are a company built on faith, family, hard work and a tradition of doing what’s right. Maintaining a culture that reflects our core values is an ongoing task as we acquire new companies and grow our business. Our team members play a key role in helping us stay true to these values. We support them by making sure they have the tools and resources they need to be successful and by establishing transparent, two-way communication with new and current employees.
