“Tyson Foods CEO: The Future of Food Might Be Meatless”
Tyson Foods was highlighted during the Food Inc video, so I was instantly interested. Tyson Foods Inc is one of the world’s largest meat producers. Tom Hayes, the new CEO of the company stated that he sees plant-based protein as part of the company’s future. Part of this reason is because he realizes that it is a growing trend in what consumers are demanding for. In this article, Hayes stated the company is committed to creating a more sustainable food system. What does this mean for the future of the food industry? Will this slow down meat protein production and consumption, and thus help the environment? What new problems will we encounter with plant protein production?
