Tyson Foods History

John Tyson began selling chickens in 1935, when he bought 50 chickens in Arkansas and sold them at a profit in Chicago.

Tyson Feed & Hatchery, as he named his company two years later, was dedicated to the buying and selling of chickens, and was incorporated in 1947.

Tyson gradually became involved in raising chickens, which gave him more control over what he sold.

In 1957 Tyson opened its first processing plant in Springdale, Arkansas.

In 1963 the company changed its name to Tyson’s Foods and went public on the New York Stock Exchange.

During the 1970’s Tyson built a new egg facility, a computerized feed mill and plant, acquired the poultry division of Wilson Foods, and made numerous acquisitions to improve their business. The company also changed its name once more, this time to Tyson Foods.

In 1995 Tyson was the leading chicken firm in the United States and its shares reached a peak in 1998.

In 2001 Tyson diversified with its $4.4 billion acquisition of IBP, the world’s largest beef processor.

Today Tyson Foods is the world’s second largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork. Tyson is the second largest food company in the Fortune 500. It has 115,000 employees and had $32.3 billion in revenue in 2011.

I work at Tyson in Carthage ms from 2006-2010 as a live hanger and while on the job I was caught drinking and I admitted to alcohol consumption instead of them asking me about my problems even though in 2010 I did have alcohol problems I thought like since I’ve been working there that long I ought to been offered help or something like alcohol anonymous but instead of that they just fired me for gross misconduct and I don’t see the reason they put gross misconduct on my record I’m trying to contact them because I want to pursue live hanging again but they will not comply so I’m sending this message to the corporate office just to see can y’all make any sense out of this because I really would like to work for Tyson again I no longer drink and I’ve been sober since 2010 when it happened and I will do whatever I have to do just to be a Tyson member again thanks

Saw your commercial on TV tonight talking about how you don’t give your chickens antibiotics. How do you raise your chickens, are they CAGE FREE, or are they JAMMED IN THOSE TINY CAGES WHERE THEY CANNOT MOVE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES? Also, do you allow your employees to kick them around like footballs and break their legs,wings etc? Like to know if you boil them alive when slaughtering them? Don’t do FALSE ADVERTISING, show the CONSUMER HOW YOU RAISE THEM, NOT JUST WHAT YOU SUPPOSEDLY FEED THEM! I am NOT A MEMBER of any kind of animal group, just a CARING PERSON WITH A BRAIN!!

sent a complaint to Springdale Arizona regarding quality control problem with the Tyson Natural lightly breaded chicken breast strips. Out of entire bag only 3 small pieces were edible rest were tough, chewy and flavorless. You folks need to “taste” your products once in a while. The chicken in that bag was so inconsistent that I probably won’t trust another Tyson product for a long time.

I’ve been working for Tyson Foods for two years and it was going great. Them people at TDC Rogers AR are wasting foods. I mean as a person who did inspection and make sales(rework), I was very surprised by the way they dumped more than 2000 lbs of meat. I mean why not feed the children in the streets of Chicago? I even cried that I saw two kids on commercial in Jamaica fighting over a piece of meat. I was filled with pressurized air when I saw all these documentaries about Hunger. Can you ask the government to help you load all these foods and fly them over across the Atlantic ocean to Africa and down to South America. Can you help fight hunger in this world??
