Whole Foods Announces Plans To Stop Selling Fast-Growing Chickens

March 17, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Whole Foods Market Inc. said it will stop selling industry-standard chickens bred to grow fast. Expected to be completed by 2024, the move will include replacing flocks at chicken farms that supply the natural and organic retailer’s stores with breeds, such as Red Ranger and Naked Neck. These breeds grow to marketable size about 23 percent slower than industry-standard chickens.
