Tyson Foods tops Fortune's world's most admired companies list for food production


For the fifth consecutive year, Tyson Foods, Inc. has been ranked number one on Fortune magazine's list of the "World's Most Admired Companies in the Food Production" category.


The annual survey, conducted by Fortune and Korn Ferry, is given to top executives, directors and financial analysts to identify the companies that have the strongest reputations within their industries and across all industries.


"This recognition from the business community is a tremendous testament to our 139,000 dedicated and talented team members worldwide," said Dean Banks, president and CEO of Tyson Foods. "We continue to put the health and safety of our hardworking team members first and are proud of their commitment to producing high quality, sustainable and nutritious protein to feed our country and the world."


Fortune's World's Most Admired Companies list is a report card on corporate reputations. Korn Ferry has collaborated with Fortune annually since 1997 to identify, select and rank the companies that are considered admired and uncover business practices that make these companies highly regarded among their peers.


To compile the rankings, corporate reputation and performance are measured against nine key attributes: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products and services and global competitiveness. Tyson Foods tops the Food Production category in all these nine attributes.
