Tyson, the biggest meat maker in the U.S. with $40 billion in revenue, has been battling a trade war and a glut of meat and poultry supply. To counter the market dynamics, the Arkansas-based food giant continued to expand beyond commodity goods and into branded and higher-margin products, striking deals to acquire McDonald’s supplier Keystone Foods for $2.16 billion and organic chicken brand Smart Chicken. Tyson also became yet another Big Food enterprise with a change in the corner office: CEO Tom Hayes stepped down in September, replaced by longtime company veteran Noel White, who says part of his plan is to push the company to expand internationally.
