Implicit in our corporate philosophy is the importance of sound corporate governance. The Pilgrim’s board of directors sets high standards for our team members, officers and directors, and is comprised of five independent members, ensuring that credible, expert voices of objectivity help guide the direction of our business. The board is responsible for reviewing the overall operating, financial and strategic plans and performance of the company and the process by which financial and non-financial information about the company is provided to management, the board and the company’s stockholders. In addition, the board also selects and evaluates senior executives and oversees appropriate policies of corporate conduct and compliance.
In 2018, Pilgrim’s board of directors approved a new Code of Conduct and Ethics and a Compliance Plan, both of which are administered and overseen by a new Ethics and Compliance Group (ECG). The head of ethics and compliance reports to the Pilgrim’s board of directors and the CFO. Additionally in 2018, Pilgrim’s combined, revised and expanded their team member reporting systems into the “Ethics Line,” which is administered by the ECG and now accessible – both online and via a telephone line – to all Pilgrim’s team members across the globe.
The ECG is also responsible for developing, administering and training on the policies and procedures ancillary to the new Code of Conduct and Ethics, including anti-bribery/anti-corruption, anti-trust/competition, international trade and sanctions, conflicts of interest and gifts. In 2018, all Pilgrim’s team members received training on the new Code of Conduct and Ethics. Additionally, all relevant Pilgrim’s team members received in-person training on anti-bribery/anti-corruption policy, including the anti-bribery laws of the U.S., the U.K. and Mexico.
