The Smithfield Packing Company Incorporated Key Developments

Smithfield Foodservice Introduces Cook-In-Bag Smoked Pork Butt

Smithfield Foodservice announced that it will offer its new Cook-in-Bag Smoked Pork Butt, making it easy for operators to maintain fresh pork quality and right-from-the-smoker taste, without the need for special cooking equipment. The benefits of Smithfield cook-in-bag technology are numerous. Each eight-pound, bone-in butt is wrapped in a pre-smoked net, infusing mouth-watering flavor throughout the cooking process as the pork develops its signature barbecue bark. The vacuum-sealed packaging helps reduce the risk of cross contamination and allows the pork to cook evenly and consistently. This high-yield product allows for maximum usage with minimal waste, since the cooked pork can be customized for a variety of applications and flavor profiles.

The Smithfield Packing Company Incorporated Plans to Shift Bone-In Ham Production Plant to North Carolina and Kentucky; Closes Landover Plant

The Smithfield Packing Company Incorporated announced that it plans to shift bone-in ham production from its Landover, Maryland, plant to its facilities in North Carolina and Kentucky, and then permanently close the Landover plant by early fall. Closing the Landover plant will affect about 175 hourly and salaried employees. Some employees will be offered transfers to other Smithfield Packing facilities, and the company also will negotiate with United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union officials regarding other potential opportunities related to this transition.
