Now Tyson engages in the production of not only chicken, but have added beef and pork lines, as well as expanding into prepared foods and other related products.

Its four business sectors it serves are officially Chicken, Beef, Pork and Prepared Foods.

The company has engaged in a lot of acquisitions since 2000, including IBP, Inc., Wright Brand Foods, Inc., Lane Processing, Holly Farms, Wilson Foods, Hudson Foods Company, Garrett poultry, and Mexican Original, among many others.

The company is headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas.
