The American company Tyson Foods, Inc. has acquired a 49% stake in the Malaysian poultry integration, Malayan Flour Mills Berhad (MFM), intending to have a more flexible supply for both companies.

With this partnership, the Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) expects to reach USD 147.4 billion or RM614.36 billion in Malaysia’s halal market in 2025.

Together with Tyson Foods, we look forward to increasing our halal poultry product offerings in the country, especially in the further processed poultry segment, as well as exporting to demand markets with the help of Tyson Foods’ global network”, said Teh Wee Chye, Managing Director for MFM.
