Smithfield Foods Again Named To FTSE4Good's Ranking Of Worldwide Socially Responsible Companies

SMITHFIELD, Va., Sept. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The FTSE Group, an award-winning global index company, has again named Smithfield Foods, Inc. (NYSE:SFD) to its prestigious FTSE4Good Index Series for companies demonstrating globally recognized corporate responsibility standards.

In order to qualify for the FTSE4Good Index Series, eligible companies must meet globally recognized corporate responsibility standards, including stringent environmental, social and governance criteria, and are therefore positioned to capitalize on the benefits of responsible business practices.

"It's indeed an honor to again be included in the FTSE4Good Index Series because it means our employees are working very hard every day to ensure our reputation as a socially responsible company," said Dennis H. Treacy, Smithfield's executive vice president and chief sustainability officer.

"FTSE Group confirms that Smithfield Foods has been independently assessed according to the FTSE4Good criteria, and has satisfied the requirements to become a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series," the organization said.
