We prioritize sustainability issues that we believe are most relevant to our business and stakeholders and where we believe we can have the most positive impact. Based on our strategy, we have organized our activities into five pillars:


Minimize our environmental impact in our poultry and processing operations by efficient use of resources while preserving or enriching natural spaces.

Animal Care

Every hen, every day, receives the best possible care from our people, guided by science-based standards in a continuous improvement framework.

Health & Wellbeing

To be an “employer of choice” with unparalleled culture, and a reputation of having a safe and healthy working environment where colleagues feel valued.

Safe Nourishing Food

Offer safe and wholesome food, produced through an indisputable commitment to quality assurance.

Community Spirit

Communities in which we operate see and feel the impact of our charitable giving, colleague volunteerism, food assistance support, and leadership in agriculture literacy.
