Tyson Foods this week was named No. 1 on Fortune magazine’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in the food production category for the sixth consecutive year.

The survey, conducted in conjunction with Korn Ferry since 1997, asks executives, directors, and financial analysts to identify companies with the strongest reputation in their industry.

“We believe this ranking reflects our focus on winning with team members, winning with our customers and consumers, and winning with excellence in execution,” Tyson Foods president and CEO Donnie King said. “Tyson is a great company with a great team. We’re honored 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.”

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.

Tyson was ranked first in the Food Production category in all nine attributes, according to the company’s press release.
