Veterans at Smithfield Foods
We're Doing More for Our Veterans
Smithfield has a long history of supporting military families through volunteerism, food and charitable donations and partnerships. In the past six years, we have donated more than $3 million to veteran-related causes. With two new initiatives, we’re working to do even more.
Smithfield Salutes is our Employee Resource Group designed to "Promote hiring and engagement of veterans by building bridges of transition from the battlefield to Smithfield." Launched in 2017, this group works across the country to support our three pillars: Recruitment, Outreach, and Internal Engagement (ROI).
Through our Operation 4000! initiative, we plan to increase the number of veterans in our U.S. workforce to 4,000 by the end of 2020. And you could be one of them.
