April 15, 2013

The FTSE Group, a global index company, has once again named Smithfield Foods Inc. to its prestigious FTSE4Good Index Series for companies demonstrating globally recognized corporate responsibility standards. To qualify for the FTSE4Good Index Series, eligible companies must meet globallyrecognized corporate responsibility standards, including stringent environmental, social, and governance criteria, and are therefore positioned to capitalize 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.
