Tyson attributes strong chicken sales for its rise in profits. “Our chicken segment achieved record operating income, and our beef segment rebounded to generate solid returns,” explains Donnie Smith, Tyson’s CEO.

Chicken sales increased 10.6 percent to $3.16-billion, in addition to Tyson’s chicken segment of the business, beef sales were also strong, reporting 6.8% increase to $3.72-billion, while pork saw a slight decline in sales.
