Veterans

Smithfield has a long history of supporting military families through volunteerism, food and charitable donations and partnerships. 


Through our Helping Our Heroes initiative, we plan to hire 4,000 military veterans by the end of 2025. We have also committed substantial resources toward veteran recruitment and career development.

A lot of my military training related to the overall concept of safety, which prepared me well for my role at Smithfield."
