We do chicken responsibly
At Sanderson Farms, we believe that we cannot fulfill our corporate purpose without conducting ourselves with total integrity. We are dedicated to producing quality, affordable chicken that is not only good for our customers but also good for our environment.
Through efforts in conservation, recyclability, renewable energy, and fuel efficiency we have been able to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint. We continue our emphasis on environmental responsibility and sustainable practices because we’re obligated not just to our shareholders, but the world at large. That’s what good, honest chicken means to us.
