Chicken is by far the world’s favourite meat. And as the cost of food soars, chicken remains the lowest-priced high quality meat protein available on the market today. Chicken is high in protein and low in calories, rich in Vitamins A and E, and lower in fat and cholesterol than most other meats. Healthy diets require lighter, well-balanced meals that are low in fat, calories, cholesterol and salt. Chicken can fill all these needs.
This versatile protein lends itself to a huge range of delicious dishes and snacks, making it a favourite of families around the world.
The United States, the largest food producer in the world, is also one of the largest producers of safe, high quality chicken. High quality breeding stock, advanced feeding techniques and stringent controls mean that U.S. chickens are plump, tender, often exceptionally large, and are free of hormones and chemicals, which is why the U.S. is renowned for producing among the best poultry in the world.
U.S. poultry products are enjoyed in over 130 countries, and are now also available in South Africa. These products, produced in highly regulated, controlled and hygienic facilities, are blast frozen to maintain optimal quality and nutritional value, and are shipped to import destinations under carefully-controlled cold chain conditions.
