Just one week after closing two poultry facilities and laying off 1,600 workers, Tyson announced its investing $70M in a new Arkansas hatchery.
The company said the 131,000-sq-ft facility will triple capacity and improve operational efficiency.

Tyson Foods is investing $70 million in a new hatchery in Hope, AR, which will replace the existing hatching facility in the state. 

The company said in a press release the new “state-of-the-art” 131,000-sq-ft hatchery will triple capacity and help improve efficiency at its poultry processing plants in Hope and Nashville, AR. The hatchery is expected to be completed by late 2024.

In addition to creating new jobs, Tyson said the new hatchery will give poultry farmers within a 30 to 50 mile radius a new opportunity for contract opportunities.

This comes only a week after the poultry giant closed two plants, in Arkansas and Virginia, laying off 1,600 employees.

Earlier this month, Tyson Foods employees, former employees, and family members filed a lawsuit against the company for failed COVID-19 precautions. And in February 2023, the company purchased Williams Sausage Company.
