The PRIDE Line
The PRIDE Line is a confidential toll-free hotline that is available 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week to allow Partners, suppliers, customers and other interested
parties to report any situations that could cause harm to our company or our Partners.
What is the PRIDE Line?
Pilgrim's contracts with an outside vendor to provide this service, insuring strict
confidentiality for anyone who uses the PRIDE Line.
As always, we advocate open communication throughout the company, and we encourage
Partners to bring any issues to the attention of their supervisors or human resources
department. In cases where this may not be possible, the PRIDE Line is available
so that anyone who believes there is a situation or activity that could potentially
harm the company can be assured that their concerns will be heard and acted upon.
We are dedicated to improving our overall environmental performance by reducing
wastes and pollution, minimizing energy and water usage, and using natural resources
responsibly. To achieve our goals for environmental responsibility, we have implemented
the Pilgrim's enviropride Sustainable Progress system, which serves as the environmental
framework for our day-to-day operations and long-range planning.

What should I do if I observe unethical behavior in my workplace?
If you are a Partner who is aware of any unethical or fraudulent activity in the
workplace, your first choice should be to notify your supervisor or human resources
department. If you are uncomfortable discussing this within the company, you should
call the confidential toll-free hotline and speak with a trained representative.
Examples of behaviors that might be reported include theft or embezzlement, conflicts
of interest, violation of SEC laws or regulations, complaints regarding the company's
accounting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters, financial, accounting
and/or procurement fraud or other questionable accounting or auditing matters, workplace
violence or threat of violence, violations of company policies, or any issues you
believe could cause potential harm to our company.
What will happen when I call the PRIDE line?
When you call, a trained communications specialist who is not an employee of Pilgrim's
will ask you your work location, the parties involved, and any other information
necessary to investigate your claim. You may choose to remain anonymous. Your report
will be assigned a confidential identification number, and you will receive a PIN
code and a follow-up date to call back to check on the status of your report.
What if I'm not sure if I should call?
If you have discussed the issue with your supervisor and are not satisfied with
the results, or if you are not comfortable speaking with your supervisor about a
particular concern, you should call the PRIDE Line and speak with a representative.
This will allow Pilgrim's to get all the facts and investigate any unethical
conduct that may be occurring in your workplace.
