Air-Chilled

What Does it Mean?

Air Chilled

Traditional chilling methods require chlorinated water, which is absorbed by the chicken and can hinder quality, taste and tenderness. Our 100% Air-Chilled method enhances the chicken’s flavor so you can be confident that you are getting the BEST chicken on the shelf.

No Retained Water

With conventional chilling systems, chicken can absorb up to 12% of their weight in added chlorinated water. This water “seeps” out of the meat and is trapped in the tray package, causing what we refer to as the “chicken juice” that leaks out of the package. Our 100% Air Chilled method eliminates the need for chlorinated ice water, so the chicken’s natural juices never get watered down. But that’s not the only benefit.

How it Works

Our Air-Chilling system consists of a large cooling chamber which is closely monitored to maintain a specific temperature and humidity. The birds traverse through these chambers on almost two miles of track, and it takes them almost three hours to move through the system. This slow process allows for better tenderization.
