“We know that the people who are buying our chicken aren’t doing it because we sponsor a golf tournament, but we don’t sponsor a golf tournament so that people will buy our chicken. We do it for the 175,000 children who are treated at Children’s of Mississippi each year.”
– Joe F. Sanderson, Jr. CEO and Chairman of the Board of Sanderson Farms

We always want to be the kind of company that remembers its heritage. My grandfather began the business with a focus on hard work, honesty, and family. As Sanderson Farms continues to grow, these values will always be a large part of our story.
