Tyson Foods’ direct and indirect economic impacts are an important aspect of our company’s sustainability performance. We recognize our financial performance can be both positively and negatively influenced by key factors which include:

  • Commodity prices and the availability of raw materials;
  • Market demand and the prices we receive for our products;
  • Livestock supply and conditions;
  • Team Member relations;
  • Product safety and quality;
  • Domestic and international government regulations; and
  • Factors or forces beyond our control, such as natural disasters and extreme weather.

To ensure our economic impacts are positive, we are committed to capitalizing on strategic opportunities and to aggressively managing potential risks. We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with best practices in corporate governance, and to preserving and enhancing our relationship with our shareholders. We are finding innovative ways to convert animal byproducts into high-margin commercial products, and we are committed to building a multi-national enterprise. We see our engagement in the policy and political process as an important part of corporate sustainability, and we work diligently on regulatory and legislative policy issues that can impact our business.

In short, at Tyson Foods we are fully committed to our Core Value statement: “We strive to earn consistent and satisfactory profits for our shareholders and to invest in our people, products, and processes.”
