Moving at The Speed of Life: Tyson Innovation Lab Connects Today’s Consumers & Tomorrow’s Needs
Speaking at New Products Conference: Rizal Hamdallah, Tyson Foods
Head of Innovation Lab
This year Tyson Foods launched the Tyson Innovation Lab which is about exploring new approaches to accelerate the pace of innovation. The lab brings together a lean team of designers, chefs, scientists and supply chain experts in a dedicated space at the company’s Chicago office and gives them six months to go from an idea to an in-market solution. For the first product launch, they have explored opportunities to help fight food waste. Utilizing what goes unused in the food supply chain as ingredients, they have developed a line of snacks – ¡Yappah! brand Protein Crisps. More recently, Tyson Innovation Lab partnered with Toronto’s Flashfood Inc., to create an affordable home food delivery business serving the Detroit market with surplus produce and proteins. Come hear Rizal Hamdallah, head of the Innovation Lab at Tyson Foods talk about his group’s new mission and methods.
