Tyson Foods Closes Major Meat Plant as It Transitions to ‘Insect Farming’

Any opinions expressed by authors in this article do not necessarily represent the views of Disswire.com.

The world’s leading meat producer, Tyson Foods Inc., announced the closure of its largest pork packing plant in Iowa this week as the company transitions towards insect farming to produce
“meat alternatives.”

The meat giant also indicated that four additional plants would close by mid-fiscal 2024, just days after announcing the closure of two major chicken plants.

“After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close our Perry, Iowa pork facility,” spokesperson said in a statement.

“We understand the impact of this decision on our team members and the local community.”

The closure of the Perry, Iowa, pork-packing plant comes just weeks after the Biden administration announced plans to use American tax dollars to convince Americans to “eat more bugs” to help “save the planet” from “climate change.

The new push for a “meatless future” is part of the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” agenda to not only eradicate meat and dairy from our diets, but also destroy farmers‘ livelihoods in the name of stopping global warming.

This comes as Tyson Foods recently announced it was partnering with a Dutch bug-protein company to implement “insect farming” infrastructure across the United States.

“Today, we’re focused on more of [an] ingredient application with insect protein than we are a consumer application,” Tyson Foods CFO John R. Tyson said in an Oct. 17 statement.

“The insect lifecycle provides the opportunity for full circularity within our value chain, strengthening our commitment to building a more sustainable food system for the future,” Tyson’s CFO said.

The shift from meat to insect protein aligns with the WEF’s so-called “environmental concerns,” as it claims that insect consumption uses less water and land than traditional meat farming.

Moreover, insects would be fed livestock waste to help reduce pollutants emitted into the atmosphere, before ultimately being sold for human consumption.

“As one of the largest food companies in the world, we look to create value in what is not consumed as human food,” a Tyson Foods spokesperson told Fox News last year.

“We see the partnership with Protix as an extension of that.”

“No or low footprint protein is the goal and we see the partnership with Protix as another way to accelerate progress towards that goal.”

The announcement of the meat plant closure comes days after Amazon founder and billionaire Jeff Bezos confirmed he was plowing $60 million into research and development of “alternative proteins,”

“Alternative proteins are an imperative if we are to stay within planetary boundaries, if we are to feed 10 billion people within those boundaries,” Andy Jarvis, the director of the BEF’s “Future of Food” initiative, told Bloomberg.

Tyson Foods food quality closed its facilities over the last few years, including two in Virginia and Arkansas in May 2023.

It also planned to eliminate about 10% of corporate jobs and 15% of senior leadership roles.

Tyson President and CEO Donnie King announced the closure of the following plants in 2024:

The globalist agenda to remove meat from our diets by 2030 is well underway.
