Tyson Foods and Cobb-Vantress Partner With OneEgg to Launch Sustainable Egg Farm in Haiti


Tyson Foods announced a $341,490 grant to OneEgg for construction of an egg producing farm in Haiti that will provide animal protein to undernourished children, while establishing an economically sustainable business model from the sale of eggs produced at the farm. As part of its corporate social responsibility efforts, employees of Tyson Foods and Cobb-Vantress, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tyson Foods, provided technical assistance and training to previous OneEgg projects in Rwanda and Uganda, but Haiti marks the first financial commitment from the company. The farm will produce a continuous supply of eggs for sale in local markets, while providing new jobs for local residents.
