September 30, 2021
SMITHFIELD, Va., Sept. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Smithfield Foods, Inc. today launched "Good Is What We Do," a new digital campaign showcasing how the company's commitment to "Good food. Responsibly.®" comes to life through its industry leading, holistic sustainability program featuring seven core pillars: animal care; diversity, equity & inclusion; environmental stewardship; food safety & quality; health & wellness; helping communities; and worker health & safety.
The campaign tells the company's sustainability story through the lens of hardworking team members and highlights the breadth of professional opportunities available across its operations. Feature profiles invite viewers to get to know Smithfield and underscore how its commitment to doing "good" doesn't stop at producing good food; Smithfield aims to make a difference by providing good jobs, taking good care of its animals, being a good steward of the environment and doing good in its communities.
More than two-dozen "Good Is What We Do" videos will be featured on Smithfield's social media channels and in hundreds of digital ad units across multiple U.S. geographies beginning this week. Campaign content can also be viewed at smithfieldfoods.com/goodiswhatwedo.
"Smithfield's innovative approach to sustainability has been leading the protein industry for years," said Keira Lombardo, chief administrative officer for Smithfield Foods. "By profiling various employees carrying out the good sustainability work we do every day across our vertically integrated operations, 'Good Is What We Do' showcases how both sustainability and the pursuit of "good" are engrained in Smithfield's company culture."
