A Cargill meat distribution facility in Mount Crawford, Virginia has logged 2.6 million work hours without a lost-time injury dating back to April 2008. The facility, which employs 150 people, ships more than 400 million points of turkey and cooked meat products each year.
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 center.
"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,” said Neal Snoddy, distribution center 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."
