At Perdue Farms, your health and well-being are our top concerns. In the past few days, we’ve experienced heavier than normal call volume as customers reach out with concerns about sourcing of our products and quality control measures we’ve put in place to guarantee the freshness and safety of the foods we ship. We want you to know that we hear you, we thank you for reaching out and we want to reassure you in every way possible that we’re putting your health, safety and well-being first.

In light of concerns over Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’d like to share the following:

COVID-19 is Not Considered a Food-Borne Pathogen

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is most commonly spread between those who are in close contact with each other, and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may also be possible for a person to contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose or possibly eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. We have strict biosecurity protocols throughout our farms and entire supply chain, including proven sanitation methods which minimize the risk of contaminated surfaces.

Perdue Farms Takes Food Safety Protocols Seriously

We have the highest standards of biosecurity and food safety, and fully sanitize our facilities every 24 hours. We are closely monitoring affected areas and reiterating our biosecurity policy to help minimize the potential to transport possibly contaminated surfaces. The staff at the onsite Wellness Centers at 19 of our facilities are trained on how to protect our associates from, and identify and respond to, symptoms of COVID-19. These professionals follow standard operating procedures as defined by the CDC for infectious diseases. The Wellness Centers are available to all associates and their families. We are taking every precaution to protect our associates, communities, customers and business partners, and ensure the continuity of our business.

All of our animals are born/hatched, raised, harvested and processed in the U.S. As with most large businesses, we source some (non-food) elements of our supply chain from countries outside the U.S. We are closely monitoring affected areas and reiterating our biosecurity policy to help minimize the potential to transport possibly contaminated surfaces.

Thank you for being a loyal Perdue Farms customer. Please reach out to our Consumer Relations team, should you have any additional questions or concerns.


What is Organic and Why Should it Matter?

What is Organic and Why Should it Matter?

Perdue raises more organic chickens than anyone in America. But what does organic mean? Basically, organic refers to the way we take care of our animals, which consists of non-GMO feed, 100% vegetarian diet, free range, natural behavior and no antibiotics ever.

Our organic products exceed the rigorous standards of the National Organic Standards Board and have earned the certified USDA Organic seal. We raise our organic chickens free range on certified organic farms. That means they have the ability to roam freely and do all of the other things chickens naturally do.

The key to keeping our little ones in tip-top health starts with their nutrition. Our chickens are fed a 100% vegetarian diet of Certified USDA Organic grains with no animal by-products and no GMOs. They never receive antibiotics or growth hormones.  

It’s easy to make organic meals that skip all the bad stuff while still tasting great with our SIMPLY SMART® Organics and Harvestland Organic product lines. You can feel good about sharing quality food and quality time with your family.

Find out more about how we raise our chickens responsibly and lovingly.
