People are our priority. We continually strive to create a work environment that is safe and engaging, fostering diversity and encouraging career development. We invest in communities where we live, work and play.

Our social principles

Supporting sustainability at the local level ripples outward.

We work alongside our brands, employees and partners to create a positive impact around the world. We believe in investing in our communities to advance a more sustainable future. Together, we are building stronger communities and nurturing future leaders in agriculture and ecology.


Supporting future farmers.

We actively invest in our operational locales and support the National Future Farmers of America (FFA). In 2022, we awarded 28 scholarships to students, with total support exceeding $225,000.


Innovation requires tapping into a variety of perspectives.

As a global organization, we prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion in our workplace. We make merit-based decisions in hiring, development and promotion and are dedicated to creating discrimination-free work environments. We strongly believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce is fundamental to operating an effective and resilient business. Diversity is important at all levels of Darling Ingredients — starting with the Board of Directors.

Our sustainability report contains information on the diversity of our global workforce.  In the U.S. we submit data to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which is mandated by federal statue and regulations, and requires employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category.  Our EEO-1 survey is located at this link. This survey may categorize data differently than our sustainability report.
