Key Factors to Note

Tyson Foods is gaining on rising demand in its retail channel, thanks to increased at-home consumption amid the pandemic. Given the rising demand, the company shifted part of its foodservice production to concentrate on retail. We believe that continued at-home dining practices are likely to have had a positive impact on retail volumes in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Additionally, the company’s e-commerce business is seeing solid growth as more consumers are buying online amid the pandemic. Certainly, continuation of this trend is likely to have aided top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter. Apart from these, Tyson Foods is benefiting from its brand strength, robust geographical reach and the ability to manufacture locally in its international markets as well as cater to the evolving global demand. Notably, the company has been focused on higher protein production to cater to the rising demand for protein-packed food.

Though Tyson Foods is seeing increased retail demand, foodservice channel remains affected thanks to reduced demand and lower production amid COVID-19. Apart from this, the company is grappling with direct incremental expenses associated with the pandemic. These include team member costs, production facility sanitization and testing for coronavirus among others. Also, indirect COVID-19 costs including expenses associated with raw materials and transportation among others is a concern.
