The Open Prairie Openness Promise
— from prairie to plate
The Openness Promise is our pledge to be transparent and our commitment to wholesome, uncomplicated meat from animals raised responsibly and humanely. To uphold these high standards of openness, we promise to:
Consistently deliver delicious, Never Ever products you can feel good about
Share our natural production processes from prairie to plate
Implement animal well-being standards that are good for the animal and the product
Maintain a high standard of doing business you can trust
Tyson Fresh Meats has always been committed to animal well-being. But we saw a possibility to go even further – providing more wholesome, less complicated beef and pork. So we created the Open Prairie brand – with meat from animals raised without antibiotics or added hormones.
With a dedicated team and a clear mission in mind, we now have a sustainable supply of animals meeting Never Ever standards. We partnered with independent farmers and ranchers willing to take on the detailed record-keeping needed to uphold our commitment to transparency and follow our strict animal well-being guidelines.
Openness, transparency, animal well-being – these aren’t just buzzwords. They are the ideals the Open Prairie brand was built on. Hear more, directly from our team members in the videos below.
The Openness Promise is the Open Prairie brand team’s commitment to transparency – from prairie to plate. Let us show you what that means for you.
