Tyson Foods has announced it will combine its Prepared Foods business unit with the company’s Growth organisation.
According to Tyson, the joined organisations will continue to focus on “brand building, operational excellence and route-to-market expansion”. Simultaneously, they will prioritise enhancing speed and agility through collaborative efforts.
Melanie Boulden, who currently holds the position of chief growth officer at Tyson Foods, is now taking on the additional role of group president of Prepared Foods. Tyson said that this approach will directly align with the company’s vision and strategy, which focuses on creating value, continued growth and enhancing the customer and consumer experience.
Boulden will now be in charge of Tyson Foods’ extensive range of products, serving its retail, foodservice and ecommerce portfolio, which includes brands such as Tyson, Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm and Ball Park.
Boulden said: “Creating a more unified team across Prepared Foods and Growth empowers us to anticipate and respond to business challenges and opportunities with greater impact. As we continue to build for the future, we remain committed to fostering the customer and consumer-centric approach that will drive us forward and help us deliver results against our strategy.”
Donnie King, president and CEO of Tyson Foods, added: “I am fully confident we have the right enterprise leadership team in place to drive growth across our entire business. The categories we operate in present unique challenges, and as the industry leader, we believe our strategy and structure position us to win in today’s marketplace.”
