Tyson Foods is "participating in its own disruption" by investing in plant- and cell-based meat

October 02, 2018 | Case Study

Population growth and the resource intensity of conventional meat production are combining to put a spotlight on alternative protein sources. Hence, Tyson Foods, a leading meat processing company, has started to think of itself in a broader sense as a protein company. In fact, the CFO of Tyson Ventures, the venture capital arm of Tyson Foods, has said, "we're willing to participate in our own disruption by investing in alternative proteins, focusing on long-term sustainability and working to provide consumers with the products they want." To date, Tyson Ventures has acted on this vision by making one investment in plant-based meat (Beyond Meat) and two in cell-based meat (Memphis Meats and Future Meat Technologies).
