Tyson Foods has announced a Forest Protection Standard focused on reducing deforestation risk in its global supply chain. Earlier this year, the company partnered with Proforest to conduct a deforestation risk assessment, which found that almost 94% of the Tyson’s land footprint is at no to low risk of being associated with deforestation.
