Smithfield Foods, Inc said that numerous of the company's facilities were recognised for their environmental and worker safety efforts during the American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) Annual Conference on Worker Safety, Human Resources and the Environment held March 9-10 in Kansas City, Missouri.
