Perdue Wants You To Eat Its Chicken Feed

Nov. 9, 2023
The poultry company launches a promotional snack to highlight its chickens’ all-vegetarian diet.

Perdue Farms next week will launch a limited-edition snack called Chix Mix, inspired by the all-vegetarian diet its chickens eat every day.

Featuring a mix of corn, wheat and edamame, Chix Mix is made from most of the same ingredients that go into the company’s chicken feed – although they added a dash of BBQ spices just for us humans. It was produced in a Perdue facility, one dedicated to human food production. 

Perdue’s using the limited-time offer to highlight its continued commitment to top-quality feed with no animal byproducts and no antibiotics – “while other poultry companies are going back to giving their birds antibiotics,” the news release claims.

Starting at noon Friday, Nov. 17, consumers can order a free bag of Chix Mix at Chix Mix will be available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
