Tyson’s 2014 purchase of Hillshire Brands for nearly $8 billion continues to pay off for the largest meatpacking company in the U.S. and is a key part of the company’s strategy to focus on less commoditized products and diversify its portfolio. With exposure to chicken, beef, and pork plus a growing business in prepared foods and an eye toward international markets it’s well-positioned for the future even as it posts growing annual losses of $2.8 billion on revenues of $36.9 billion.
