TAKE ACTION: Email Tyson’s new tech partner that cruelty won’t fly!

Compassion Over Killing

Jun 7, 2019 — 

Last month, you flooded Tyson Foods’ new partner, tech accelerator Plug and Play, with calls urging it to take a stand against cruelty. TODAY: Fly home the message with a quick, polite email to Plug and Play’s Global Director of Food & Beverage (use our sample below)!

More than a quarter million of you have signed our petition since our gut-wrenching investigation exposed egregious abuse and the devastating effects of rapid growth of birds in Tyson’s supply chain. In response, the poultry giant has taken some promising steps, including announcing its own upcoming plant-based meat, with CEO Noel White recently stating, "I think it certainly has the capability of being a $1 billion business for us."

Yet Tyson has still failed to address a major source of suffering in the hundreds of millions of birds it breeds every year: These birds have been genetically manipulated to grow so unnaturally large, so quickly that they can suffer heart attacks and their fragile legs often collapse under their own morbidly obese bodies -- all before they’re even 2 months old!

Now the nation’s biggest poultry company has joined forces with Plug and Play to connect startup companies into its supply chain in its hometown in Arkansas--and we need YOUR voices once again to make sure its new business partner is aware of the egregious cruelty hidden behind Tyson’s products!

Send a quick email to Plug and Play’s Global Director of Food & Beverage, Brian Tetrud, at b.tetrud@pnptc.com using our sample below (or your own polite message)!

SAMPLE EMAIL:

Dear Mr. Tetrud,

I am writing to express my concern about your new partnership with Tyson Foods. A recent Compassion Over Killing investigation exposed horrific suffering due to Tyson’s breeding of birds to grow so unnaturally large, so quickly that their fragile legs often collapse under their own morbidly obese bodies. Yet the poultry giant has refused to take responsibility for this abuse. Please use your influence to send a strong message to Tyson that cruelty in its supply chain won’t fly. Thank you.

Sincerely,
[YOUR NAME]
