The J. R. Simplot Company is one of the largest privately held firms in the country, with annual sales of about $4.5 billion.
Founded as a one-man operation more than 70 years ago by J. R. “Jack” Simplot, the company has grown into a global food and agribusiness conglomerate with products that are sold in every state and many foreign countries.
Customer satisfaction is the primary goal of all our products and services, and the Company is recognized as a leader in production innovation and efficiency.
The Simplot Company’s mission statement, Bringing Earth’s Resources to Life, embodies our reason for being in business. We mold many of our planet’s raw materials into value-added items that sustain and enhance life.
Our board of directors, composed of Simplot family members and business executives from diverse backgrounds, is well-versed in every aspect of what it takes to run a successful organization, both at home and abroad.
In addition to understanding the ingredients of building a profitable business, we’re keenly aware of our ecological responsibilities. Simplot continually addresses environmental matters, not only because we depend on the continued availability of natural resources for our livelihood, but also because good stewardship of air, land, and water is the right thing to do.
We believe successful companies must be responsible members of society in other ways, too. Through such activities as our annual Simplot Games track meet, we regularly support a wide variety of needs in communities where we operate.
