Smithfield Foods - ranked as socially responsible

The FTSE Group, an award-winning global index company, has again named Smithfield Foods, Inc. to its prestigious FTSE4Good Index Series for companies demonstrating globally recognised corporate responsibility standards.

To qualify for the FTSE4Good Index Series, eligible companies must meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards, including stringent environmental, social and governance criteria, and are therefore positioned to capitalse on the benefits of responsible business practices.

"We are proud to continue to be a member of the FTSE4GoodIndex which speaks to the hard work our employees dedicate to producing Good food. Responsibly. We will continue to invest in and grow our sustainability programs," said Dennis H. Treacy, Smithfield's executive vice president and chief sustainability officer.

"FTSE Group confirms that Smithfield Foods has been independently assessed according to the FTSE4Good criteria, and has satisfied the requirements to become a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series," the organsation said.
