Smithfield Foods issues new CSR report
US pork producer Smithfield Foods have announced
issuing a new corporate social responsibility (CSR) report. The report is the
seventh in a series of CSR and Environmental Annual Reports that the company has
published beginning in 2001.
The 96-page report discusses Smithfield Foods'
performance in environmental stewardship, animal welfare, food safety, community
engagement, and employee well-being -- the CSR areas the company believes are
most important to it and to its stakeholders.
The content focuses primarily on calendar year 2007 but
includes fiscal year 2008 financial information and discussion of some key
developments that occurred in early 2008. Smithfield Foods' fiscal year runs
from May through April.
The report is
available on the internet at
With sales of $11 billion, Smithfield Foods is the
leading processor and marketer of fresh pork and packaged meats in the United
States, as well as the largest producer of hogs.
