Tyson Foods To Mark 83 Years With Record Share Price, Sustained Growth

Springdale-based Tyson Foods will hold its annual shareholder meeting Thursday (Feb. 8) morning at its new offices on Emma Avenue in downtown Springdale – near the spot where the company was once headquartered. Investors and company execs have plenty to celebrate behind CEO Tom Hayes’ first year at the helm.

It’s the 83rd birthday for Tyson as a company but it in no way resembles the old Tyson Foods which began as a seller of live chickens in the early 1930s. Don Tyson, son of the founder John W. Tyson, took the company public 55 years ago in 1963 after the company began to vertically integrate and opened its first chicken processing facility in 1958.    MORE
