Protecting Our Natural Resources

Through Project Clean Stream

Environmental Stewardship Initiative

In 2008, Perdue Farms and its associates joined the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s Project Clean Stream initiative to clean up waterways and shorelines in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Since then, Perdue has expanded the Project Clean Stream concept across the company and engaged associates in environmental clean-up projects in our communities.

Collaborating With Oyster Recovery Partnership In Maryland

Perdue Farms continues its longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship by partnering with the Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP) to bolster the health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Since 2009, Perdue associates and family members collaborated with ORP representatives to construct oyster cages, aiding the Marylanders Grow Oysters program. This initiative, part of Perdue’s “Delivering Hope To Our Neighbors®” campaign, aims to enhance community well-being and ecological vitality.

The Marylanders Grow Oysters program, supported by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, empowers waterfront property owners to cultivate oysters for eventual placement in local sanctuary preserves. These oysters, nurtured through their most vulnerable first year of life within the cages, are subsequently transplanted to sanctuaries to enrich ecosystems and provide habitat for marine life.

Perdue’s partnership with ORP spans 14 years, during which associates have contributed more than 8,000 volunteer hours, resulting in the planting of more than 25 million juvenile oysters. Through such collaborative efforts, Perdue Farms exemplifies its dedication to conservation and the preservation of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
