Tyson Foods has become the first U.S. food company to verify sustainable beef production practices at scale, launching a beef transparency program on more than 5 million acres of cattle grazing land.
Working with Where Food Comes From, the largest provider of certification and verification services to the food industry, Tyson Foods will source cattle from BeefCARE-verified beef producers who are committed to raising cattle using practices that positively impact the land and animals. BeefCARE, a third-party sustainability verification program for cattle ranchers, uses third-party audits to verify that farmers and ranchers are using best practices in caring for animals, the environment, and the people and communities who support them. BeefCARE standards include practices such as having a cattle grazing management plan to help promote vegetative growth and diversity, water availability and quality, prevent/reduce soil erosion, and support carbon sequestration.
