What is Sanderson Farms?

Sanderson Farms is one of the nation’s leading poultry corporations, with annual sales of more than $3.3 billion. Our 15,000 plus employees and more than 1,000 independent growers are committed to offering our customers the best products on the market today. Although we’ve grown in size from a farm supply business to the nation’s third largest poultry producer, we’re still a family-owned company. We adhere to the same values of honesty, integrity and innovation that have been with us since our founding in 1947. We are proud that our chicken is 100% Natural, which means it is free of things like carrageenan, broth, salt and other additives that some companies use to pump up their chicken. (source)

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Sanderson Farms stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
