Tyson Foods

Tyson Foods is the second largest processor and marketer of chicken, pork, and beef worldwide. Operating out of multiple subsidiaries, the company is widely known for its prepared foods and meat products sold in grocery stores under such brands as Jimmy Dean and Hillshire Farm. Tyson Foods is the largest annual exporter of beef from the U.S., via the 123 food processing facilities it owns and operates throughout the nation. In 2020, the company faced backlash for allegedly failing to comply with recommended worker safety guidelines in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic; several of its plants saw widespread outbreaks of COVID-19 among employees. In 2021, the meat giant announced it was entering the plant-based meat market with a new line of vegan-friendly products.
