Spain, 2018-Mar-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour Spain has launched the first free range chicken reared without antibiotic treatments in the country as part of the strategy announced by Carrefour Group to make our company a reference in food transition. This chicken is sold under the “Calidad y Origen Carrefour” (Carrefour Quality and Origin) brand.
With the highest standards of animal well-being.
The free range chicken has been reared without the use of antibiotic treatments and to the highest standards of well-being. The chickens are reared using preventative treatments based on phytotherapy, in which plant extracts are used in their feed. This type of livestock farming encourages the development of animals’ natural resistance.
In addition, the chicken is produced according to environmentally sustainable parameters. The birds are reared on farms located in Galicia (Spain) and what’s more, aspects such as vegetation, which must be indigenous, or the livestock farming model, which must be traditional, are taken into account. Also, these birds are free to roam the fields and are given 100% plant-based feed, including 70% cereals, 50% of which is corn.
