About Us

We invite you to come inside and see how chicken is produced in the U.S.

Foodservice.ChickenCheck.In is the place for culinary professionals to learn more about how the chicken you serve to your patrons is raised and processed.

We understand that the burden of proof for the care of the average American bird that we eat falls squarely on us, the National Chicken Council (NCC). Research tells us that foodservice customers are increasingly looking to foodservice operators to provide knowledgeable answers to their questions about the chicken they are eating out of home.

That’s why, in the spirit of transparency and education, we invite you, the foodservice professional to come and take as close of a look as you desire—at our birds, their lives and the steps that are taken along the way to help ensure that you can serve chicken with confidence.

We take pride in the care of our chickens, but we know we can always do better.

If you have a question, please contact NCC at (202) 296-2622 or reach us by email here.
