Tyson acquires poultry rendering company
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.
