Tyson Sells Assets To Focus On Protein

Tyson Foods shifts its mission to focus as a protein company, rather than just a meat company. ( Tyson Foods )

Tyson Foods, Inc., sells its Sara Lee® Frozen Bakery and Van’s® businesses to private equity firm Kohlberg & Company, the company announced.

“These are great assets with outstanding team members; however, we’re focused on expanding Tyson Foods’ leadership position in protein,” said Sally Grimes, Group President, Prepared Foods.  “We believe these brands and facilities will do well as part of Kohlberg, which has extensive experience buying and growing businesses.”

The sale includes the Chef Pierre®, Bistro Collection® and Van’s® brands, and a license to use the Sara Lee® brand in certain channels. The deal also includes the sale of the company’s Tarboro, N.C. and Traverse City, Mich. prepared foods facilities and a sales office in Canada. The 1,160 team members employed at the two facilities and sales office are expected to keep their positions with the new company.

Tyson, the Springdale, Ark.-based company with $38 billion in revenue last year, has recently invested in lab-grown meat start-ups Beyond Meat and Memphis Meats.

In 2016, Tyson initiated Tyson Ventures with $150 to invest. Tyson ventures now has a stake in four companies, which, analysts say, indicate a shift in the company’s mission – to strive to be a protein company, not just a meat company.

This is my story, a true life story on how I survived an abusive husband(s). Please read and share.

Leaving an abusive marriage was life threatening, I was scared of the post-divorce lifestyle. I felt starting afresh with another man seems impossible at my age because my husband(s) always downplays my emotions making me feel like a worthless woman. Yes, I was married thrice.

I was betrayed by a friend, cheated upon by husband(s), beaten, jailed but I never gave up, I chose to ride or die with my current 5-year-old marriage because of love, our children and our shared finance. Though I love my husband to a fault and believed I can change his mindset through spiritual means before we go our separate ways.

After domestic abuse and emotional conflicts comes spiritual father, Dr. Wakina with redemption and restoration via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com with the spell that ended my abusive circle. I also escaped social pressure.

I wasn’t wrong afterall sticking to my husband and changing our lifestyle through spiritual doctors. Believe me, we’re living our dream lifestyle for over 5-months with much love and respect for each other.

I still don't seem to understand how assets and proteins might be related. Maybe some edubirdie review might be able to help me in figuring this out therefore I will refer to them.
