Perdue’s recent announcement that the company is now raising more than half of its chicken with no antibiotics of any kind—human or animal—is good news for the rising number of operators who want to capitalize on the growing demand for No Antibiotics Ever protein. In a recent survey, Technomic found that 56 percent of consumers thought premium poultry (for example, no antibiotics ever, cage free, and organic poultry) should be available at the restaurants they visit, and 63 percent said they were willing to pay more for premium poultry.
