We are fully committed to the ethical and humane treatment of our poultry.
Safe Food Practices
We deliver the highest quality poultry, in large part due to our safe food practices. All Koch Foods facilities are USDA inspected and operate under Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedure (SSOP) plans that meet all regulations under 9 CFR 417. Additionally, Koch Foods BRC Standard’s Certification guarantees the standardization of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensures that we fulfill our required obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.
Like all animals, chickens can be prone to illness, and, in the event a poultry flock must be treated, Koch Foods follows all FDA regulations regarding the use of antibiotics. Strict quality control, including Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP), is utilized in the manufacturing of our feed for poultry including testing of the feed for proper level and type of antibiotic added. Koch Foods adheres to all FDA regulated withdrawal periods. Our poultry meat has never tested positive for antibiotics.
While we adhere to all government mandated inspections and procedures, our corporate values and sense of responsibility lead us to go beyond standard compliance. Koch Foods has developed and implemented a strong internal program that helps provide security and safeguards at every touch point to keep you and our chicken safe.
