Golden Glazed Ham

Genuine Smithfield Hams have crowned America’s tables for generations. They are as distinctive as they are delicious, as elegant as they are hearty. They are the flavor of Southern Hospitality.

The Luter family of Smithfield, Virginia, has been curing and selling hams since the turn of the century. Joseph W. Luter, Sr.’s first job was at a local meat packing plant. His young son, Joseph W. Luter, Jr., followed in his father’s footsteps, learning every phase of the meat packing industry. And eventually persuading him start their own business - Smithfield Packing Company was chartered in 1936.

In 1962, with Smithfield already on its way to becoming the “Ham Capital of the World”, Joseph W. Luter III took the reigns. Expanding the plant’s facilities and product line became the key to a growth cycle that promoted Smithfield Packing Company from a family business into a large, investor-owned and publicly traded company. Today with Joseph W. Luter IV on board, the company retains its family heritage and has become a worldwide marketer of pork products and one of America’s largest meat companies – poised for significant growth and expansion.

Over the years, the curing process for Genuine Smithfield Hams has changed little. However, with the development of high-tech hog breeding techniques, there is now a new generation of pork that combines yesterday’s goodness with today’s leaner taste. And Smithfield is making it easier and more convenient to serve.

Thank you Table For 7 for the versatile award. Thank you so much! I truly appreciate it.
