Tyson Foods Hopes New Bill Of Rights Will Improve Grower Relationships

Tyson Foods recently issued a new bill of rights contract for its poultry growers in an effort to foster more transparency and better communication between the corporate giant and family farmers.

The Springdale-based company unveiled the new contract this week and said it is also in the process of forming an advisory council made up of poultry farmers. The company said the move will include additional technology investments to enhance communication from the farms to the company.

“We value the farmers who raise our chickens and work hard to maintain good relationships with them, but also know we can do better,” said Doug Ramsey, group president of poultry for Tyson Foods. “That’s why we’re taking steps to enhance how we interact with them.”    MORE
