28/05/2015: Cargill US meat distribution facility tops 2.6 million work hours without a lost-time injury

150-person team to be recognised May 20 by state, US and company

Cargill’s distribution centre at Mount Crawford, Virginia, US ships more than 400 million pounds (200,000 tons) of turkey and cooked meats annually, and the 150 member team that does the work has logged 2.6 million hours without a lost time injury, dating back to April 2008. The Mount Crawford team that achieved this milestone is part of the Wichita, Kansas-based Cargill Turkey & Cooked Meats business, and will be recognised by company, state and US officials at a ceremony at the distribution centre, 11:00 a.m., May 20.

The Mount Crawford team ships Cargill’s Honeysuckle White, Shady Brook Farms, Castlewood Reserve and Charter Reserve meat products from the 150,000-square-foot distribution centre established in 1992. Products shipped from the distribution centre move to domestic retailers and foodservice companies, as well as to foreign markets including Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Guatemala, Angola and Benin. 

“We ship a lot of meat products produced in this region. Those nutrient-rich protein products nourish millions of people. We are always focused on workplace safety, stated Neal Snoddy, distribution centre general manager. 

“We also take a great deal of pride in this safety achievement because it is one of our top priorities. People have the right to thrive as part of Cargill, which means returning home injury-free each day. The focus on safety has been woven into Cargill’s cultural fabric over the company’s 150-year history.”  

The May 20 recognition event at the Mount Crawford, Virginia distribution centre is “by invitation only.” Cargill is one of the largest US producers of turkey, beef and pork products, as well as a variety of further processed meat products, that nourish Americans, as well as people around the world.
