Tyson Announces Line of Plant-based Meat Alternatives

Tyson Foods has introduced its first plant-based meat alternative product, additional meat-and-plant blended products, and a new Raised and Rooted brand for its retail line.

The announcement Thursday morning highlighted new products such as plant-based nuggets and blended burgers, set to debut later this year, and blended sausage and meatballs, made with chicken and plant-based ingredients.

Noel White, president and CEO of Tyson Foods, said in the press release, “For us, this is about ‘and’ — not ‘or.’ We remain firmly committed to our growing traditional meat business and expect to be a market leader in alternative protein.”
