Tyson Foods Expands Global Reach With New Acquisitions


SPRINGDALE, AR
Thursday, June 6th, 2019

In a move to extend its global presence, Tyson Foods has recently announced the acquisition of Thai and European businesses from BRF S.A. Along with acquired brands Grabits, Hot ‘N’ Kickin’ Chicken, Speedy Pollo, the Sadia, and more, the company will gain four production facilities in Thailand, and one each in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, according to Talk Business.

Noel White, President and CEO, Tyson Foods“The addition of this experienced and talented team combined with these businesses strengthens our capabilities and increases our reach to new markets. I’m glad to welcome them to the Tyson Foods family,” said Noel White, President and CEO. “We’re now strategically aligned to better serve customers in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, building on our global strategy.”

The company is aiming to expand its offerings of value-added protein in global markets, because estimates predict that approximately 90 percent of future global protein consumption will occur outside the U.S., according to the news source, and 60 percent of the volume growth will come from Asia in the next five years.

The facilities in the U.K. and the Netherlands are supported by in-house innovation capabilities for developing further-processed chicken products for foodservice and retail customers throughout Europe, the news source reports.
