Look, we're going to say it. Kentucky Fried Chicken is the best chicken in the world. Yeah, we went there. And we reckon a big reason for that is our commitment to making sure we only use the highest quality, ethically sourced ingredients. This means we require all our suppliers to abide by all applicable laws, codes and regulations, as well as the high standards set out in our Supply Chain Management Code of Conduct.
Animal welfare is a big focus for us. All the chickens we use are raised in large barns, which allows flocks to be raised comfortably. We also require all our chicken meat suppliers to be members of the Australian Chicken Meat Federation and to strictly follow the Model Code of Practice for the Welfare of Animals, Domestic Poultry. We've even gone above and beyond and developed our own Code of Conduct for suppliers, which includes animal welfare standards. We take this responsibility very seriously - any supplier caught violating it can kiss their contract goodbye.
We also follow all laws and regulations around the use of antibiotics to ensure all of our food is safe for our customers, as outlined in Yum! Brands' Good Antimicrobial Stewardship Principles. We know this is really important to a lot of people, so that's why we're committed to working with our suppliers to find ways to reduce the use of antibiotics important to human medicine in our chicken supply.
