What’s more important: Where your food comes from or how your food makes it to your table?

By Naomi Robinson Leave a Comment

**This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Perdue. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I flew into Maryland on a red-eye and that was on the heels of a previous red-eye from California to New York (less than 24 hours before) for a four-hour event that ended in a crazy cab ride from Koreatown to JFK.  After a panic-sprint from one side of gate C to the other, I made it with just enough time to realize I had no way of getting from Dulles Airport out to Salisbury, Maryland — a three-hour ride starting at midnight.

Westover, Maryland - July 11, 2018: Attendees of the 3rd Annual Perdue Farms Animal Care Summit toured the Perdue Research Farm on July 11 in Westover, MD where Perdue is studying ways to continue improving the care of their animals and develop industry-leading best practices. CREDIT: Matt Roth

My point is, I wasn’t focused on the next day’s event. That is until I arrived at the farm—still blurry-eyed from a lack of sleep. I told Matt, “Good thing, I didn’t miss my flight” while slipping the plastic covering over my shoes to protect the chickens, “because we are finally going to see first-hand why Perdue is leading the industry with animal care”.

Keep in mind this is Perdue’s research farm, so there are various types being studied, with varying activities all with same end goal—that is, to create a better chicken atmosphere, one that provides a comfortable environment where chickens can express their animal behavior and live a healthy life.

With that in mind, Perdue focuses on five core freedoms for its chickens:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury or disease
  • Freedom to express normal behavior
  • Freedom from fear and distress

What do all these things point towards? For Perdue it’s about Commitments to Animal Care—a revolutionary change in how they raise their chickens. It’s a shift from thinking about what chickens need to what chickens want.

I know, mind blowing.

The next day after the farm visit was the annual Animal Care Summit that brought together advocates, a customer panel and farmers to discuss, explore and share the latest animal care improvements and commitments to future advancements. They had speakers from: Compassion in World Farming, Farm Animal Protection and Mercy for Animals, all organizations that lead the effort to improve animal welfare policies and practices in measurable ways. The customer panel included Wakefern Food Corp., the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the  US, a cooperative that independently owns and operates 350 supermarkets. Another panel featured Perdue farmers, the stewards of Perdue’s vision and values.

The biggest takeaway after listening to all the speakers and panels discuss providing better welfare for animals, while producing quality food, and protecting the environment was:

Where your food comes from matters, but how your food makes it to your table matters even more.

This just makes me even more proud to align myself with a brand with this much integrity and soul. A brand that also has committed itself to:

  • Feeding all their chickens a vegetarian diet—no animal by-products
  • All Perdue chickens follow a no-antibiotics-ever protocol
  • To help ensure the chickens stay healthy, Perdue uses natural supplements like oregano and thyme

Now that you are in the know, which poultry brand are you going to put in your cart the next time you go shopping?
