Smithfield Foods Awarded for Environmental and Workplace Safety Performance

Smithfield Foods recently announced that the company's facilities across the United States received a total of 74 awards this year from the American Meat Institute (AMI) Foundation for their environmental and worker safety performance.

The awards were announced during AMI's annual conference on Worker Safety, Human Resources and the Environment which was held in Kansas City, Mo.

"This is another exciting year to have so many of our companies and facilities recognized by AMI, because it continues to demonstrate that our environmental and workplace safety commitments are truly an integral part of all levels of our organization," said Dennis H. Treacy, executive vice president and chief sustainability officer.

AMI Environmental Recognition Awards is a four-tier, voluntary environmental management system toolbox. The program begins in Tier 1 with simple environmental compliance policies and culminates with an ISO 14001 EMS as Tier 4, the most complex program.

AMI recognized 35 Smithfield Foods facilities with Environmental Recognition Awards, all in Tier 4.
