Our Social Responsibility

Our Corporate Citizenship Mission

Our citizenship mission is to make good food in a responsible way. We do this through our people, the food we bring to your plate, the way we handle natural resources, and our approach to philanthropy.

Our Traditions with Purpose

Reflecting on 2017, we had many accomplishments only made possible through the hard work of our team members. Let's take some time to review some of our successes with a focus on our four pillars from our Traditions of Purpose initiative - People, Planet, Plate and Philanthropy.


Our people are the heart of our business, so their safety, health and satisfaction are among our top priorities.

Our award-winning safety programs and processes demonstrate this commitment: Butterball’s enterprise-wide recordable injury rate is consistently at least 50 percent better than the poultry industry average.

We believe in promoting from within and developing our team members for significant career opportunities with us. To support that commitment, we offer robust training and development programs including on-site job skills training, and leadership and professional development courses. It’s the Butterball Way to continuously improve, and that applies to each team member’s personal and professional development.

We commit to high quality and safety standards that generate food our consumers love and that meets their standards for healthy options that suit their lifestyles. We’re proud of the food we produce.

Our communities are more than simply where we operate. They are where our team members and consumers live and raise their families. We commit to passionately serve the communities we call home.

Centering on local communities, we give back through our organization’s resources and our people’s time. Butterball supports local community needs through financial and in-kind donations, and partners with national and local nonprofit organizations such as Feeding America and Operation BBQ Relief. Our team members volunteer and participate actively in causes that impact their local communities, such as raising money for the American Heart Association and Toys for Tots.

We strive to continuously improve our practices to be more sustainable as a company; even small changes can make a difference. As a company grounded in agriculture, we recognize the importance of managing our use of the planet’s natural resources that serve to support the production of our products in a conscientious manner within our operations.
