SALISBURY, MD. — Perdue Farms is one of seven companies from around the world scheduled to be featured in the premiere of “The Green Room,” a new Discovery Channel program about environmental leaders. The program will debut on Feb. 13 at 7:30 a.m. and will highlight innovative ways the private sector is meeting environmental challenges.

Perdue's poultry litter processing plant, which is the first-in-the-nation of its kind, will be featured, along with the company’s unique agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help farmers keep waterways clean. Interviews with Jim Perdue, chairman and chief executive officer of Perdue Inc., and Terri Wolf-King, an independent poultry producer who raises chickens for Perdue on her family farm in Hurlock, Md., will be included in this segment.

"We are delighted that Perdue's longstanding commitment to good stewardship, dating from the company's beginnings in 1920, got such recognition," Mr. Perdue said. "Our associates work hard to be good environmental stewards, both through the company and with our farm family partners who actually grow the poultry. It's great to see their efforts spotlighted."
