At Smithfield, food safety and quality are more than a set of standards to meet. They are ingrained in our culture and touch every Smithfield employee – from our farms to our corporate offices. We are proud of our food safety policies, procedures and performance. To learn more, view our food safety and quality video.
Our teams are always on the lookout for ways to improve our food safety and quality processes. Within our facilities, our food safety and quality leaders have the authority to make improvements and take countermeasures above and beyond our standards to correct any issues. When improvements are identified and implemented, they are evaluated by the Smithfield team, shared across all Smithfield facilities and incorporated into our standard operating policies when appropriate.
We are focused on producing safe, wholesome products for our customers and consumers, operating under strict programs and policies that ensure food safety and quality in every step of our value chain. We also collaborate with the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and industry organizations on projects aimed at improving food safety and increasing consumer protection.
In 2021, we combined our food safety and quality assurance departments for our fresh and packaged meat operations to achieve a standardized, comprehensive approach that underscores our food safety culture and commitment to producing high-quality, safe food for our customers around the world.
Our programs and policies ensure food safety and quality in every step of our value chain.
