Accessible, Transparent Ingredients Lists



Smithfield Food's ingredient glossary is the first online resource of its kind provided by a pork processing company. The online glossary lists and describes ingredients used in products across the company's brands. The glossary provides consumers with greater assurance of Smithfield's commitment to transparency and producing safe, high-quality foods. 

"We're committed to upholding the highest standards of transparency in every aspect of our business from our animal care practices and environmental impact to how we make our products," said Stewart Leeth, vice president of regulatory affairs and chief sustainability officer for Smithfield Foods. "Our ingredient glossary echoes this commitment by providing consumers and other stakeholders with useful, accessible and easy-to-understand information about the ingredients we use to produce high-quality food."

The ingredient glossary currently lists the name, definition and uses of nearly 100 ingredients used in Smithfield's products. This new tool marks the most recent of several product-focused innovations.
