Tyson Foods diverts meat shipments from locked down Shanghai

28 April 2022

Finding trucks to move product has been difficult

US meat processor Tyson Foods has diverted meat shipments to other markets from China as ships back up in Shanghai's port due to the COVID-19 lockdown, reported Reuters citing Chief Executive Donnie King on Wednesday.

Backups at the port are related more to difficulties finding trucks to move products than to the inability to unload ships, King told a Congressional hearing on US cattle markets.

"We've had to sell products into other markets for a period of time until that cleans up, until the lockdown is over," King said.
