Antibiotic-free, air-chilled chicken products from Gold Kist

20-09-2006 | | |

Atlanta-based chicken processor, Gold Kist Inc., unveiled a new line of chicken products raised without antibiotics.

In response to the natural protein trend, Gold Kist’s new Nature Select line comes from birds raised on a diet of corn, bran and soybean meal and processed using air chilling instead of the typical immersion chilling.
Gold Kist farmers were specially trained to raise the chickens for the new line, and the company expanded its feed mill to handle the new feed.
