At the end of the day, our Team Members work together with Family Farmers, supplier partners, retailers, restaurateurs, and other foodservice partners to help you create the special meal-time memories your family deserves.
Our relationships with the Family Farmers who grow our chickens and raise the cattle and pigs that we use are some of our most valued. Our service technicians and veterinarians frequently visit the farms where independent, contract farmers raise our chickens. Team Members from our Fresh Meats group also visit cattle ranchers and pork producers. Our FarmCheck™ Program provides more formal audits to ensure the animals are treated with respect and cared for properly.
Hatcheries and Feed Mills
Tyson Foods has its own hatcheries to hatch the chicks that will be taken to Family Farms. We also have our own feed mills to make all of the feed for the chickens raised by the Family Farmers we work with. The hatcheries and feed mills help us raise healthy chickens that are of the highest quality.
Feedlots and Livestock Operations
We have relationships with feedlots that finish raising the cattle we buy and with livestock operations that raise the hogs we buy to make sure they are healthy, treated with respect, cared for properly, and grown to the appropriate weight and age.
More than 90,000 Team Members work at our plants in the U.S, to make the thousands of beef, chicken, pork, and prepared foods products we produce. Did you know that we make more pepperoni and other pizza toppings than anyone else in the U.S. and are the second largest producer of corn and flour tortillas?
We have our own distribution centers, cold-storage facilities, and warehouses to provide for fresh, safe products that are delivered to all of our customers and consumers through our own distribution system.
Our over-the-road drivers deliver our great food products to appropriate stores, clubs, and restaurants.
