Tyson Foods Shareholder Meeting Includes Optimism, Protestors

Tyson Foods Chairman John Tyson, grandson of the company founder, told shareholders Thursday (Feb. 8) the family venture has come a long way since its beginnings on Emma Avenue.

The small company transformed into a modern food company with a huge responsibility to take care of the workplace, animals, the environment and its 112,000 employees, he said.

“There are some people who think large scale food is wrong. But if they knew all our great people’s efforts, they would be surprised,” Tyson said during the meeting, which was held in new annex offices in downtown Springdale. “Food brings us together. … We take our responsibilities seriously and we accept them understanding their importance.”    MORE
