Our response to Coronavirus (COVID 19)
We announced nearly $60 million in “thank you” bonuses to 116,000 frontline team members.
When asked why we help, the answer is always “because it’s the right thing to do; it’s what we do at Tyson Foods.”
Our team members have always been the backbone of our company. We’re doing more to support them while they produce food every day during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our company was built on hard work, humility and purpose. Today more than ever, our work shines with even more purpose after the U.S. government listed food supply as a critical infrastructure industry amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
At Tyson, we try to approach this as a “human event” – one that calls us to take care of each other and the communities where we live and work.
We are committed to feeding the world, and that begins with the relationships we have with our independent livestock producers who provide us with high quality livestock.
Our purpose – to raise the world’s expectation for how much good food can do – reflects our principles and gives us direction to positively impact the world.
You’ve likely noticed some empty store shelves as American consumers flock to retail grocery and club stores in response to the spread of COVID-19. We take our role to feed the world very seriously.
Protecting team members and ensuring the continuity of our business are essential as we continue efforts to address COVID-19 (coronavirus). We’ve been actively monitoring this situation and are continually adjusting our approach as we learn more about the spread of this virus.
Adjusting plans and adapting to challenges. We’re accustomed to it in our business. The most recent example is the global spread of coronavirus, known as COVID-19.
