Tyson Foods Looking into Global Expansion
Tom Philpott is the Grist's food editor and founder of Maverick
Farms, a sustainable-agriculture non-profit and small farm located in
the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. He writes about
Tyson Foods, one of the two largest beef packers, the second-largest
pork packer, and the second-largest chicken producer in the US, which is
planning to expand to Brazil, India, China, and the entire global south.
Tyson was the innovator of the "vertical-integration" strategy that now
dominates meat production by owning mega-packer breeders,
slaughterhouses, and processing farms leaving the risky job of raising
the animals to farmers working on contract. Philpott, rightly says that
Tyson is "actively pursuing a nightmare vision for the globe."

The devastation that companies such as Tyson Foods create in God's
Creation is so great that humans, animals and the environment are deeply
affected. It is up to us, the consumers, to stop these companies from
expanding by not supporting them.
