On August 14, 2009, Smithfield Foods, Inc. (the “Company”) completed its previously announced offering of $225 million aggregate principal amount of its 10% Senior Secured Notes due July 2014 (the “Notes”).

The Notes were issued pursuant to the same Indenture, dated as of July 2, 2009, among the Company, substantially all of the Company’s U.S. subsidiaries, as guarantors, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee and collateral agent (the “Indenture”), as the previously issued notes, and will vote together as a class with, and form a single series with, the previously issued notes.

The description of the terms of the Indenture and of the Company’s 10% senior secured notes due 2014 is incorporated herein by reference to the Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 8, 2009. The description of the Indenture and the Notes set forth herein and therein is summary in nature and is qualified in its entirety by reference to (i) the full text of the Notes, a form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.2, which is incorporated herein by reference, and (ii) the full text of the Indenture, the Amended and Restated Pledge and Security Agreement, the Pledge and Security Agreement, the Intercreditor Agreement and the Intercreditor and Collateral Agency Agreement, copies of which were attached to the Company’s Form 8-K dated July 8, 2009 as Exhibits 4.1, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 and 4.8, respectively, and which are incorporated herein by reference.
