Tyson Foods is set to open an information technology center in Europe, which would create more than 200 technology jobs.

The Springdale-based meat company said it chose to open an “IT Hub” in Lisbon, Portugal, home to an emerging tech startup scene, as a way to support its anticipated growth in the European food market.

“This is a critical next step for our expansion within our international practice to leverage quality talent to help deliver the latest ideas for human and food safety,” Dan Barrett, vice president, IT Europe at Tyson Foods, said in a written statement.

More than 30 technology positions are currently available on Tyson’s careers website, including cloud, data sciences and full stack software engineering.

In recent years, the company has invested more in technology and innovation with the construction of a manufacturing automation center and Tyson Emma offices for information technology workers in Downtown Springdale.

The Lisbon location is scheduled to open May 2.

Tyson shares fell 16 cents, or 0.18% to close Monday at $86.77.
