Tyson Foods Inc. is working to reduce deforestation in its global supply chain. The company announced on Nov. 12, a Forest Protection Standard aimed at lowering deforestation risk in the supply chain of four commodities – cattle and beef; soy; palm oil; and pulp, paper and packaging.

“As one of the world’s largest food companies and a recognized leader in protein, we have an important role in protecting forests and other natural ecosystems,” said Dean Banks, president and chief executive officer of Tyson. “We are asserting our ambition to make protein more sustainable and look forward to working with our supply chain partners, customers and other stakeholders to do our part on this important issue.”
