Boston Market expects 75 percent of its poultry products to be antibiotic-free by July.
GOLDEN, Colo. – Boston Market announced the company’s commitment to serving 100 percent antibiotic-free chicken products. Boston Market operates restaurants in 462 locations in the United States.
Under the company’s “Quality Guarantee,” Boston Market restaurants will serve all-natural and fresh, never frozen rotisserie chickens that are:
- US-farm raised
- Without added hormones or steroids
- 100 percent antibiotic-free
- MSG free
- Gluten free
The company expects 75 percent of all Boston Market rotisserie chickens will be raised without the use of antibiotics as early as July of 2017, while 100 percent of the whole chickens will be antibiotic-free by the end of the first quarter in 2018.
“We couldn’t be more proud to become the first national chicken-specialty chain to reach the goal of serving our customers 100 percent antibiotic-free chicken by early next year,” George Michel, CEO of Boston Market, said in a statement. “Boston Market has already committed to the use of no antibiotics to stimulate growth in our rotisserie chickens for quite some time, and transitioning to all antibiotic-free chicken was the next logical step in the ‘Quality Guarantee’ we promise our guests.”
