Health and Wellness Highlights and Achievements
Now more than ever, consumers of all generations are drawn to the benefits of healthy lifestyles and diets. At Smithfield, we are too.

Our Goals And Targets
Delivering Healthy and Nutritious Food
For more than 80 years, Smithfield has been feeding families with trusted pork and protein products that help them meet their daily dietary needs. We continue to reduce and simplify the ingredients we use and develop plant-based protein options to satisfy growing flexitarian appetites. As COVID-19 abruptly shifted food shopping, preparation and eating habits, we ramped up our e-commerce and home-delivery support for customers and consumers alike.
Innovating in Health and Wellness
We have a responsibility and commitment to maximize the use of nonfood byproducts from our meat-production operations. With our vertically integrated supply chain providing an unparalleled level of traceability and product safety, our Smithfield BioScience operation enables us to use parts of the animal that are not typically eaten for human health and wellness purposes.
