Food safety comes first throughout Chick-fil-A supply chain


We all think of chicken when we think of Chick-fil-A, but salads and other produce are a hugely important part of the chain's success. Chick-fil-A Manager of Food Chain Safety Steven Lyon talks about how the fast food giant keeps food safety top-of-mind.

"Food safety is critical to Chick-fil-A — we're the No. 1 chicken chain restaurant but we also serve over 160 million pounds of fresh produce annually," Lyons said. "Literally from the farm to the back door of the restaurant, we make sure items are being produced safely, verified through audits and validated for the highest risks. It shows complete alignment with our food chain partners."
