Business & Social Responsibility

We believe that acting in an environmentally, socially and financially responsible manner makes good business sense.

Foremost Farms is continuously finding better ways to be good stewards of the environment, keep our employees safe and healthy, improve the communities we’re part of and drive economic gain for our farmer members.


We're working to create a world-class safety, health and engagement culture for 1,100+ employees in 14 manufacturing plants and office locations. From reducing safety incident rates to increasing leadership and development programs to giving back to our communities, we invest in programs that support our people.


As a farmer-owned cooperative, protecting our animals and our environment is a fundamental value. We’ve invested millions to reduce fuel, water and energy use, lower emissions and lighten our environmental footprint. Investments run the gamut from state-of-the-art water treatment facilities and energy-efficient boilers to environmentally-friendly farming practices and waste recycling programs.


Profit allows us to make strategic investments that further strengthen our social responsibility efforts and environmental initiatives. Our long-term financial success allows us to continue improving operational efficiencies, manufacturing wholesome products, and growing with our member-owners and customers.
