Tyson Foods Inc. plans to build new production facilities in China and Thailand, and expand its facility in the Netherlands. The latest expansions, adding more than 100,000 metric tons of fully cooked poultry capacity, reflect company’s global growth strategy to become the leader in protein by serving emerging markets and strategic customers.

The expansions are expected to create many direct and indirect jobs as production starts in local communities. The new plant in China is expected to create more than 700 jobs, and the European expansion will add more than 150 jobs. Thailand’s new plant, part of a long-standing joint venture with GFPT Public Company Limited, is expected to bring more than 1,000 jobs.
