Digital disruption has been a problem for many retail businesses and media outlets, but it is also becoming a driving force in the way meat packing companies such as Cargill and Tyson are transforming their business models.

Tyson has also undergone a digital transformation in the past few years, and analysts say that it signals a shift from being just a meat company, to a protein company.
