Tyson Foods is using a camera monitoring system at its poultry plants and has employed specialists to keep watch on all its meat operations in an effort to improve animal welfare. Tyson has also started a program to assess bird-catching methods on farms, and it's preparing to begin testing a new process at two of its facilities to render poultry unconscious. The new programs come after the company's mid-April hiring of Justin Whitmore as chief sustainability officer.
Tyson Foods Inc. is rolling out a new line of meal kits for purchase online and at grocery stores to meet a growing demand for partially prepared meals that require limited preparation. The meal kits, called Tyson Tastemakers, include measured ingredients, fresh vegetables and seasoned meats. They are available at a few grocery stores in Texas and online at Jet.com or Amazon. Tyson Premium Pairings are also available, which are chef-inspired prepared meat options without vegetables or side items.
It all began with a veteran who didn't know how to raise chickens. Seven years ago a farmer in the hills of Northwest Arkansas began a poultry operation with two-dozen laying hens. "It's grown exponentially from there," said Terrell Spencer, owner of Across the Creek Farm. Today, he sources an annual average of 10,000 to 12,000 chickens to farmers markets, food co-ops and restaurants, who find value in knowing exactly where their food comes from.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
