ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A announced on Sept. 12 that it reached the goal of serving “No Antibiotics Ever” chicken in all its US locations.
The quick-service restaurant made the commitment in 2014 and arrived at the mark early, serving no antibiotics chicken since May 2019. Packaging at more than 2,400 restaurants will change in October to reflect the commitment to customers.
"We know consumers care about how their food is made and where it comes from, including the use of antibiotics. Because it was important to our customers, it was important to us," said Matt Abercrombie, director, menu and packaging for the company. "Chick-fil-A has always been committed to serving customers delicious food made with high-quality ingredients and offering No Antibiotics Ever chicken was the next step. Our goal was to pursue the highest standard and partner with the USDA to verify it."
Abercrombie also said that Chick-fil-A worked with suppliers to convert the entire supply chain. The company said it is the largest quick-service restaurant to implement No Antibiotics Ever chicken across all its restaurants.
