Smithfield Prod, Romania’s largest producer of fresh pork and a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, again has launched its internship program to help students better understand the food production industry and make the transition from theoretical to practical skills. Participants are assigned to a department appropriate to their focus of study and then given the chance to learn in a ”real world” setting by getting involved in all operational departments throughout the course of the three-month internship.
Currently, 24 students are involved with the program through the top three universities in Timisoara, Romania: West University, Polytechnics University and University of Agriculture, Science and Veterinary Medicine and Electrotechnics. Participants represent a variety of fields including technology, agriculture and food production.
As part of our commitment to the communities in which we live and work, and to support the educational process in the region, this internship program helps further the education of future food production professionals.
