GEORGIA FARM BUREAU: Chick-fil-A reaches goal of serving "no antibiotics ever" chicken

Georgia Farm Bureau issued the following announcement on Sept. 25.

Chick-fil-A announced on Sept. 12 it has reached its goal to serve No Antibiotics Ever (also known as “NAE”) chicken in its more than 2,400 restaurants in the United States.

In 2014, Chick-fil-A announced it was pursuing a commitment to serve only chicken raised with NAE nationwide by the end of 2019. Along with its supply partners, Chick-fil-A met the milestone early, serving only NAE chicken at every Chick-fil-A restaurant in the United States since May. Beginning in October, packaging in restaurants will reflect this achievement.

Under NAE, no antibiotics of any kind may to be administered to the chicken within its supply, starting from the egg. The USDA audits and verifies that suppliers are meeting the requirements.

Chick-fil-A is the largest quick service restaurant franchise (based on sales data) to implement NAE chicken across all restaurants in the U.S., and research shows that customers were eager for this transition. A 2018 survey by Datassential shows 50% of consumers say they would be more likely to buy NAE chicken.
