Tyson: Setting A New Standard In Beef Production

As the largest U.S. food company, we have the responsibility and opportunity to be as transparent as we can about the products we produce. Our core values call on us to be good stewards, so we’re continuously looking at new ways to increase accountability and transparency throughout our supply chain.

Today we’re setting a new standard that we believe will raise expectations across the beef industry around what it means to raise cattle sustainably. We have become the first food company to license Progressive Beef™, the largest-ever cattle sustainability program verified through USDA approved auditors.

What is Progressive Beef?

Progressive Beef is a quality management system designed for cattle feeding operators that sell to companies like Tyson Foods. We don’t own feedlots or ranches, but instead rely on more than 4,000 independent producers across the country to sell us high quality cattle.
