Why Tyson

The Tyson Foods Advantage

There are plenty of rendering companies out there ‐ why choose Tyson Foods? Because it matters where your ingredients come from. Tyson Foods is a Fortune 500 company with more than 75 years of experience feeding people and their animals. But our reputation is built on our satisfied customers ‐ like you.

Your customers expect quality ingredients. You expect quality service. That's the Tyson Advantage.

Vertical Integration

We use a vertically‐integrated system, so we have full control over product quality and greater efficiencies throughout every stage of the chicken's life cycle ‐ from egg to finished product. As a result, all our raw materials come from USDA inspected processing plants. These high‐quality raw materials result in more consistent ingredients and an amazing level of traceability.
