Our operating philosophy

Producing safe food of the highest quality for millions of individual consumers and families is a goal and priority driven by Smithfield’s mission and operating philosophy in the 11 countries of the world where the company’s subsidiaries are located.

In every country where Smithfield Foods, Inc. companies are located, their operations are conducted with full respect for our customers, consumers, suppliers, cooperating farmers and local communities.

The basic premise of the company’s operations is “field-to-table” vertical integration. It ensures product safety and guarantees the supply of the highest quality breeding material, meat and processed meat products, with full traceability of the product and its origin.

Consumers are not necessarily familiar with the name Smithfield Foods, Inc, as the company sells its products under a number of globally known brand names. In North American countries these are: Smithfield, Eckrich, Farmland, Armour, Cook’s, Gwaltney, John Morrell, Kretschmar, Curly’s, Carando, Margherita or Healthy Ones, while in Poland they are: Krakus, Morliny, Morlinki, Berlinki, Mazury and Yano.
