Approach to Animal Welfare
Our Strategic Intent
The strategic intent of the Office of Animal Welfare is to drive continuous improvement in animal welfare outcomes across Tyson's operations and supply chain by identifying and mitigating risk and capturing opportunity through active collaboration, engagement and focus on research and innovation. To accomplish this, we have identified six strategic objectives which guide our work:
that defines how the OAW identifies, prioritizes and communicates its priorities and initiatives.
by partnering with each business unit to grow engagement, strengthen accountability and promote ownership.
through supplier assessments, robust auditing and reporting of key welfare policies, procedures and metrics.
for customers and consumers by collaborating with sales and business units and enabling functions to create value through added product attribution or by providing a comprehensive understanding of welfare-related initiatives.
in animal welfare by our internal and external customers through technical support as well as leadership and participation in activities and organizations that lead in welfare research and policy.
