Mission Statement

Tyson Foods’ workforce consists of a dynamic group of Team Members with a variety of experiences, beliefs, and lifestyles. Together, we are committed to creating a food system that is more sustainable and equitable for current and future generations. Collectively and individually, we operate with integrity while living out our mission and values, honoring our differences, and our culture as we embrace innovative ideas.  

We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion is paramount to our continued success. Therefore, we strive to recruit, retain, develop and promote talent that believes that our differences strengthen our ability to innovate, move beyond challenges and execute with excellence with a level of trust that is undeniable. 

As we achieve the above, we can: 

  • Meet our communities’ needs
  • Enhance consumers’ lives
  • Fulfill customers’ expectations
  • Create belonging as the prominent feeling among Tyson Team Members



Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Tyson is committed to creating a culture of safety, belonging and empowerment for all. Our eight Business Resource Groups (BRGs) are integral to our DEI strategy. These groups allow our company to celebrate its unique culture with our team members. The BRGs also have a collective voice in how we do business. 

 Also, our team members’ beliefs matter. That's why we welcome respectful religious expressions and are proud to be a faith-friendly workplace. Our chaplaincy program has dedicated chaplains from many faiths and religions. They are available at plants and facilities, ready to listen, offer support, and talk to team members about daily life.
