Our Aspirations to Our Customers


To be their most trusted partner, providing innovative product and service solutions.



Documented and audited steps at each critical stage help ensure food safety and quality.

Dedicated QA labs serve each of our food plants.

Secured ingredients areas are just one of the many steps we take to maintain the integrity of our products.

Trucks are secured from the time they leave the plant to arrival at the customer.
Keeping it Safe:
Food Security and Traceability


We have long-standing practices to protect the safety and integrity of our products. As always, we continue to meet the standards prescribed by federal, state and local authorities to ensure the safety of our food products—especially as it relates to bioterrorism.

  • Our documented and audited food safety program—coupled with our stringent biosecurity measures, audited Best Management Practices and HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) procedures—continues to produce consistently wholesome food products for the market place.

  • Our food safety and security protocols include on-farm biosecurity procedures and our controls on the health of chickens and turkeys—including avian influenza screening for every flock—are of the tightest of all poultry producers.

  • We have round-the-clock security coverage at all processing facilities, security cameras at sensitive areas, and a multitude of screening and testing performed by Perdue's team of quality assurance and veterinary personnel, and government and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials.

  • Those security measures extend through our distribution network; all food product shipments are sealed before leaving our production facilities and we have our own quality assurance personnel at third-party facilities.

  • Ingredients, including spices and breadings, are stored in secured areas with controlled access, with careful documentation tracing each back to its supplier.

We are very proud of our record of food safety. But, we also have documented steps in place in the event of a product recall or market withdrawal, and regularly practice mock recalls to assess and improve our processes. Our integrated order, inventory and shipping systems within our Food Products operations enable us to track our products from work in progress in our facilities to delivery to specific customer locations, as well as the ability to stop shipments in en-route.
