More Than a Career
A Culture that Cares
The Simplot brand began to take shape in the farm fields of southern Idaho in the late 1920s. Young J.R. Simplot struck out on his own at age 14, set on entering the agriculture business. While he had just an eighth-grade education, he was armed with keen entrepreneurial instincts, constant curiosity, boundless energy and an irrepressible drive.
Today, fueled by J.R.’s irrepressible belief in the promise of the possible, Simplot’s diverse portfolio spans from mine to plate and everything in-between.
We’re still a privately held company headquartered in Boise, Idaho but have grown into an international food and agriculture company. More than 13,000 employees run major operations in six countries to deliver products to people around the world. Our integrated portfolio includes phosphate mining, fertilizer manufacturing, farming, ranching, food processing, food brands, and other agriculture-related interests.
Being a part of the J.R. Simplot Company is joining a legacy of passionate people who profoundly respect Earth’s resources and are driven by a powerful spirit of innovation.
