Important Messages from Clemens Food Group →

At Clemens Food Group, our daily activities are guided by four Key Expectations that are built around our core values of Ethics, Integrity, and Stewardship.

These Key Expectations, Safety, Food Safety, Quality, and People are fundamental responsibilities of every team member at CFG. On the farm, on the road, at our plants, at headquarters, those four things are—without exception–top priorities.



I will be safe.

From safety on the farm, to safe driving on the roads, to team member safety at the plant, not only do we uphold the highest industry safety standards in every aspect of our business, we also encourage every team member to be a safety advocate for themselves and others. We want every team member to go home every day as healthy as when they came in.

Food Safety

I will produce safe food.

The combination of state-of-the-art food safety and quality technology, along with a dedicated FSQA Team helps to ensure food safety and quality in every step of our business, from farm to fork. Our operations are SQF Certified for both food safety and quality. This third-party certification ensures we meet or exceed the global standards for producing safe, quality food.


I will do it right every time.

We employ rigorous quality tests throughout our plant to ensure our commitment to delivering exceptional pork never wavers. We believe the quality of our products reflects the quality of our work and the quality of the people we work beside every day. That’s why every single team member is empowered to stop a production line if they don’t believe our quality standards are being met.


I will respect others.

We treat every team member with respect, offering fair wages and competitive benefits to every employee in every part of our business. We also expect every team member to treat others with the same level of respect. That includes other team members, our customers, consumers, and our business partners and suppliers.
