Farbest Foods is dedicated to environmental stewardship and the conservation of natural resources. We recognize the ethical obligation to be conscientious consumers, to reduce environmental impact, and to conserve resources for the protection of future generations.
Farbest follows federal, state and local laws and takes additional, voluntary measures to enhance the safety of our products and the well-being of our turkeys. In addition, Farbest Foods values opportunities to improve the communities in which we operate.
Our affiliation with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) gives us access to valuable research and programs promoting sustainable agriculture. We also fully support the agency’s vision, which includes this statement: “to preserve our Nation’s natural resources through conservation, restored forests, improved watersheds, and healthy private working lands.”
What’s more, as a Certified Livestock Producer, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to progressive environmental practices that encompass nutrient management, handling of animal waste, and conservation in general.
Our Environmental Commitment is Firmly Embedded in Our Company’s Mission
By continuously updating our practices and processes, we’ve significantly reduced our environmental footprint. These ongoing efforts have positively impacted our organization in two important ways: 1) We have increased productivity, and 2) Lowered our use of natural resources.
While the sustainability movement is gaining important momentum, its practices are not new to Farbest Foods. In fact, our commitment to environmental responsibility is part of our organization’s Mission:
To consistently provide customers with top-grade turkey products by sustaining excellent, world-class performance in every area of the organization including safety, health, environment, quality, business operations, reliability and efficiency.
Today and Tomorrow
Since 1970, turkey consumption has more than doubled in the United States—with the increase attributed to consumers appreciating its excellent taste appeal and nutritional value. As Farbest Foods continues successfully meeting the growing demands of further processers around the globe, we will stay committed to our dedication to sustainability.
