There is no longer any doubt that America’s biggest threat, outside the nation, is Communist China.

But there are a shocking number of American big businesses that are helping them.

And this Virginia-based pork conglomerate is now feeding the Communist Chinese military.

Smithfield Foods, America’s largest pork producer, has been exporting massive quantities of pork to its Communist Chinese “sister company.” 

Stockpiling food for the Communist Chinese military

And according to a Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) report that company is stockpiling food for the Chinese military.

The disturbing information was gathered by DCNF after a review of corporate records and Communist Chinese state-run media reports.

Smithfield Foods, a once-respected Virginia-based pork producer owns roughly 150,000 acres of U.S. land and operates dozens of feed mills and production plants.

In 2013, Smithfield was bought out by Chinese company WH Group and its sister company Shuanghui Investment and Development Company.

Since that time, Smithfield has shipped hundreds of thousands of tons of pork to Shuanghui.

Shuanghui has extensive ties to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), and even brags about those ties on its website. 

The Communist company is also responsible for developing food for China’s military to use on the battlefield, according to the PLA-sponsored China Military News.

Shuanghui has also operated a food “mobilization center” for the PLA in Henan province since 2009.

This mobilization center stockpiles food, including pork, to help meet the PLA’s emergency response needs, and Chinese state-run reports show that Shuanghui has distributed food from this stockpile to Chinese soldiers on multiple occasions.  

Superior American pork going to our enemies

A December 2023 report from the Luohe municipal government in the Henan province shows the military stockpile is still active and remains under Shuanghui’s management.

While the company doesn’t officially disclose exactly where the pork it supplies the PLA originates from, it’s almost certain at least some of Smithfield’s U.S. pork product is being supplied to the PLA, according to Brian O’Shea, a former military and intelligence analyst.

“My opinion would be that the Chinese government is giving this superior U.S. pork to their soldiers,” O’Shea told the DCNF.

His analysis is based on his deep understanding of Smithfield’s central role in Shuanghui’s pork supply chain and its close relationship with the PLA.

“At these mobilization centers, there’s going to be a Smithfield pile and a Chinese domestic pork pile, and the Chinese domestic pork is most likely going to the civilians, whereas the superior pork is going to the Chinese military,” O’Shea said.

WH Group acquired Smithfield in 2013 for $7.1 billion. 

At the time, WH Group Chairman Wan Long said the acquisition would allow his companies to “meet the growing demand in China for pork by importing high-quality meat products from the United States,” also saying the merger “provided Smithfield the opportunity to expand its offering of products to China through Shuanghui’s distribution network.”

The DCNF also reported that WH Group’s chairman and four other executives of the company are Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members.

WH Group’s leadership now includes both Shuanghui and Smithfield executives.

Since the 2013 merger, Smithfield’s exports to Communist China have greatly increased. 

Its pork exports to China exploded from roughly 83,000 tons in 2018 to approximately 335,000 tons in 2020.

And it now appears most of that increase is feeding the very army that could one day attack the U.S.
