Tyson acquires poultry rendering company

22-01-2009 | |

Tyson Foods has reportedly completed the acquisition of Central Industries, a poultry by-products rendering company in Forest, Miss., US.

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.
