A Message From Chairman Jim Perdue

We are pleased to present our latest Corporate Stewardship Report, which underscores our enduring commitment to be the most trusted name in food and agricultural products.

We take great pride in sharing our journey of operating in a manner that aligns with our core values of quality, integrity, teamwork, and stewardship. These principles have shaped our path for over a century, enabling us to consistently deliver high quality wholesome products to our customers and consumers, while upholding the trust they have placed in us.

We are equally focused on the future. Our commitment extends beyond profit margins and market presence. We recognize the responsibility we have toward our associates, our planet and the communities in which we operate and live. All of which are integral parts of who we are.

Within this report, you will find an overview of the steps we have taken, and the outcomes achieved in the areas of environmental sustainability, community well-being, diversity, inclusion and equity, and animal care practices.

Our success and longevity can be attributed to the unwavering commitment
of our more than 20,000 dedicated associates and all our stakeholders who help us thrive.

At Perdue Farms, we firmly believe that responsible business practices, a diverse workforce, and ethical treatment of our animals are not only the right things to do, but also critical for long-term success. We will remain dedicated to these practices through:


  • Our commitment to cultivating a diverse and inclusive workforce. We recognize that diversity is not just about gender, race, or ethnicity, but also about embracing different perspectives, backgrounds, and talents. By fostering an environment that values and respects these differences, we can enhance creativity, innovation, and collaboration within our organization.
  • Our steadfast commitment to the ethical treatment of our animals. We embrace our responsibility to ensure that the animals in our care are treated with dignity and respect. In fact, animal care is an important part of our value of stewardship.
  • Our commitment to initiatives throughout our operations that promote environmental sustainability and conservation. We recognize the importance of minimizing our ecological footprint and are dedicated to implementing practices that preserve natural resources, reduce waste, and promote renewable energy sources.
  • Our commitment to being good stewards of the communities in which we work and live. We are committed to fostering positive relationships with our neighbors and ensuring the well-being of local economies. By supporting local initiatives and collaborating with our neighbors, we aim to deliver hope and make a meaningful and lasting impact on the places we call home.


Our report truly embodies the spirit of teamwork and partnership. Together, with our stakeholders, we have built a legacy of ethical excellence. That same spirit will guide us on our path forward.
