Tyson Foods is the world's second largest animal protein producer, and the biggest in North America, with the company producing one of every five pounds of chicken, pork and beef consumed in the US. Tyson has a weekly processing capacity of 155,000 cattle, 461,000 pigs and 45,000,000 chicken across 201 production sites, with distribution channels including consumer products, food service, international and industrial. Outside of the US, the company is structured into three regional divisions - China/Korea, Asia Pacific and Europe - through which it serves customers in over 100 countries worldwide. Alongside its 121,000 employees, Tyson works with 11,000 independent livestock and poultry farmers.
Tyson Foods ranks 12th in the animal protein value chain segment, outperforming the majority of its peers in the livestock, dairy and seafood sectors. It places in the top ten for environment, thanks to its recognition and activities on almost all topics in the measurement area, and in the top 15 for governance and strategy thanks to its targets and reporting on topics across all measurement areas. Again the company has most room for improvement in nutrition, where it lags behind leading peers in all relevant topics. Tyson Foods also ranks 60th amongst food and beverage processors in the benchmark, ahead of the majority of its peers but with similar room for improvement as highlighted above, particularly in nutrition and social inclusion.
