How We Got Started

In 1936, Joseph W. Luter and his son founded a small meat-packing company, The Smithfield Packing Company, along the tributary of the historic James River in the colonial town of Smithfield, Virginia. Over 60 years later, the “Genuine Smithfield Ham” that brought them worldwide acclaim is still born, bred and produced only in Smithfield. We now have a line of quality meats so vast, it’s helped make the parent company, Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest producer of pork products. Thanks to our heritage and commitment to flavor, Smithfield is now known as the “Ham Capital of the World.”
