Veggie Fed

100% VEG FED

Our farmers are proud to provide their chickens with all-vegetarian feed. It's how they help every animal get the right start it deserves and the care it needs.

for our chickens

The USDA verifies that all our chickens are fed clean ingredients, which means a 100% vegetarian diet with no animal by-products that are commonly used in commercial feeds, and are cared for in a clean, safe environment.

Process Verified

Approved and then some

All chicken is inspected by the USDA, but Perdue asked the USDA to go even further — in our hatcheries, our feed mills and the family farms where our chickens are raised. The USDA verifies that all our chickens are fed a 100% vegetarian diet, with no animal by-products, and cared for in a clean, safe environment.

doing the right thing

To give you the assurance you want regarding how our chicken is raised, fed and processed, we work directly with the USDA to create verification programs to address these areas.

when you see the seal you know that we’ve gone to help you feel even better about the chicken you’re eating.

Perdue was the first chicken company to receive the USDA Process Verified seal, letting consumers know that we meet specific quality standards on a consistent and ongoing basis as verified by the USDA and independent third-party audits. These audits include reviews and validation of our documented quality management system. Upon acceptance by the USDA, we can market this certification process as USDA Process Verified.


The USDA Process Verified seal lets you know that PERDUE® Fresh All-Natural Chicken has been:

  • Raised without cages
  • Fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products
  • Labeled with our Signature Tenderness Guarantee on selected products
