Meat Giant Tyson Foods Launches ‘sustainable Protein’ Coalition

Tyson Foods, the world’s second-largest meat processor, has announced it is convening a new ‘Coalition for Sustainable Protein’ in a bid to collaborate with the rest of the protein industry so as to sustainably increase global protein supply. Announcing the move at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Tyson Foods said the coalition would “unite stakeholders across the food and agriculture sector to identify and implement new and creative solutions to sustainably feed the world’s growing population”. In particular, it will consider how to reduce food waste, increase access to protein, and safeguard eco-systems. The move is the latest sign the meat industry is feeling the pressure as growing numbers of consumers embrace plant-based food options, often for sustainability reasons, and agricultural supply chains face mounting climate impacts. Tyson Foods did not give details of which companies and organisations would be part of the coalition, confirming only that it would include representatives of “all forms of protein”, as well as experts from academia, non-governmental organisations, and financial institutions.
