Moving the Industry Forward

Today’s savvy shoppers not only want to know where their food comes from but also how the animals are raised. When shoppers buy from a retail outlet that is part of the Progressive Beef ™ program, they can be assured that the beef they buy comes from feedlots that put a high priority on cattle care and sustainability. It’s a cattle management and sustainability program that gives consumers more assurance about how the animal was cared for. Tyson Fresh Meats is proud to partner with Progressive Beef and other fresh meat suppliers to help move the beef industry forward.

It’s about encouraging the entire beef industry to follow better practices when raising cattle in a more sustainable environment, and to be held accountable by being verified by third-party auditors. That extra care and effort makes all the difference.
