In the heart of the great depression, Tyson foods was founded by John Tyson. Originally a chicken merchant – moving chickens from Arkansas to larger markets in the midwest.
During World War II, food rationing was normal but luckily for Tyson, poultry was not one of the items that was rationed. Tyson moved into grinding feed for chicken farmers as well as raising chicks.
During the 1950’s, John’s son – Don joined the Tyson Foods team. They maintained their vision together and continued building the company. Don eventually took Tyson Foods public in 1963.
The 1970’s through 1990’s saw the company become ever more diversified. And sales continued to increase with that diversity. In 1970, Tyson became part of the Fortune 1000; by 1982 they had reached the Fortune 500.
By 1986, Tyson had become the country’s largest hog and poultry producers.
Through mergers and acquisitions with Holly Farms, Arctic Alaska Fisheries, Louis Kemp Seafood, Hudson Foods and IBP, today Tyson Foods is the largest meat producer in the world.
