For the sixth consecutive year, Tyson Foods ranks No. 1 on Fortune magazine’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in the Food Production category.

The annual survey, conducted by Fortune and Korn Ferry, asks top executives, directors, and financial analysts to identify the companies that have the strongest reputations within their industries and across all industries.

“We believe this ranking reflects our focus on winning with team members, winning with our customers and consumers, and winning with excellence in execution,” said Donnie King, president & CEO of Tyson Foods. “Tyson is a great company with a great team. We’re honoured to be recognized as a leading food company that is investing in rural America to help meet the needs of a growing, global market. We remain committed to excelling at what we do, from workplace safety and environmental sustainability to product development and digital technology.”

Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list is one the definitive report cards on corporate reputations. Korn Ferry has collaborated with Fortune annually since 1997 to identify, select, and rank the World’s Most Admired Companies and uncover the business practices that make these companies highly regarded among their peers.


To compile the rankings, corporate reputation and performance are measured against nine key attributes: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products and services and global competitiveness.

The World’s Most Admired Companies list can be found on the Fortune website. For more information on how the rankings are determined, view the full methodology on Korn Ferry’s website.
