Cargill facility tops 2.6 million work hours without lost time injury
Cargill’s distribution center in Mount Crawford, VA, ships more than 400 million pounds of turkey and cooked meats annually. 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 distribution center--part of the Wichita, KS-based Cargill Turkey & Cooked Meats business--ships Cargill’s Honeysuckle White, Shady Brook Farms, Castlewood Reserve and Charter Reserve meat products from the 150,000-square-foot facility. Products move to domestic retailers, food service companies and foreign markets.
“We ship a lot of meat products produced in this region. Those nutrient-rich protein products nourish millions of people,” said Neal Snoddy, distribution center general manager. “We 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.”
