Now, more than any other time in history, sustainability in the food industry is seen as an important means to help future generations to flourish. At SSR, sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Our products and services help promote meat industry sustainability and reflects a mindset and way of life that views the planet’s resources as precious and finds ways to make the most out of what has been given to us.
In the pork industry, our harvesting and development of porcine tissues and materials increase the effective utilization of materials deemed inedible by American palates. Rather than letting almost 50% of an animal go to waste, we take the remaining animal tissue and process them to be used across many essential industries. Our work reduces waste, promotes food industry sustainability, and aids scientific and medical advances.
Our connection to responsible, meat industry sustainability practices is what drives us to new innovations and further success. These core beliefs are essential to our identity and motivate us to protect our planet’s resources while improving the lives of humans and animals.

Reduce waste by efficient harvesting.
We believe in constant exploration and innovation to find new ways to increase the full use of an animal in the creation of porcine tissue and materials. Not only do we strive to make our harvest practices more efficient, but we understand the importance of meat industry sustainability and make sure that our operating procedures have as little impact to the environment as possible. We ensure full utility of the animal by working in partnership with customers who utilize essential porcine materials and pig co- products for a variety of industries.
