Tyson acquires poultry rendering company
Tyson Foods has reportedly completed the acquisition of Central Industries, a
poultry by-products rendering company in Forest, Miss.,
This company produces raw materials that are used to produce pet food and
other animal feeds, as well as biodiesel. Tyson previously held a 49% ownership
position in Central.
According to Jeff Webster, group vice president of
Tyson's Renewable Products Division, 100% ownership will generate a greater
financial return, and will give their rendered products business greater access
to the southeastern US market.
