When Smithfield Foods waddles up to the trough, the other porkers stand aside. Fat from acquisitions, the company is the world's largest hog producer and pork processor. Its products include 50-plus brands of fresh pork and processed, value-added pork products including deli meats and prepared foods. Smithfield Foods sells its products under such brand names as Armour, Eckrich, Cook's, Farmland, John Morrell, Patrick Cudahy, Gwaltney, and Healthy Ones. Smithfield distributes its meats in the US and abroad, mainly in Mexico, Poland, Romania, and Western Europe. Founded in 1936 as The Smithfield Packing Co., the company was acquired in 2013 by China's largest meat producer, Shuanghui International.
