Tyson Foods Inc. of Springdale said it would build and expand facilities overseas to increase its international production capabilities.

The company will build plants in China and Thailand and expand its facility in the Netherlands. Tyson Foods recently announced it would expand its Raised & Rooted plant-based protein product line in Europe, and that production will be based out of the Netherlands.

The company said the expansions will add more than 100,000 metric tons of fully cooked poultry capacity.

“Global population and income growth will continue to drive an increased need for protein,” Tyson Foods CEO Dean Banks said. “These investments allow us to increase our in-country operations and global export capabilities, helping us bring more safe, high-quality protein for consumers in these countries as well as for customers in other parts of the world.”

Tyson Foods said the expansions will create nearly 2,000 jobs, including more than 1,000 in Thailand.  

“We have been aggressively building our overseas presence servicing foodservice and expanding into retail with innovative products,” said Chris Langholz, the president of the company’s international division. “The marketplace is changing, and we’re changing with it. We’ll continue to enhance our ability to serve growing global demand for value-added protein.”
