Quality is at the forefront of every decision made at Seaboard Foods. Over his 25-year tenure, Jimbo Portman says the concept of quality has changed with the exceptions of always maintaining high quality, efficiency, genetics and the caliber of pork we produce has never wavered. At the center of quality are our people. Jimbo and his partners use the art of personal connection to break the language barrier between he and his employees. They shake every employee’s hand and greet them every day at the beginning of their shift. “Everyone is special in their way. It’s all about teamwork and helping others out for the good of the company,” admitted Portman.
