    Tyson is rethinking what it means to be a meat company, by investing in disruptive but more sustainable food ideas: Its venture arm has backed Beyond Meat, which is replicating meat using plants, and two companies that are growing meat from cells. Tyson is also battling antibiotic-resistant bacteria by moving to eradicate such drugs from the supply chain of its chicken business.
