July 18, 2016 Food Purpose

Healthy Chickens. Healthy People.

At Taco Bell, we love to give you Más.  Mas flavor, mas deliciousness, and always mas value. There are some instances though where doing more for our customers and our planet actually means doing less. 

This is why we’ve said adios to artificial ingredients and flavors; and now, as of Q1 2017, our chicken is no longer raised using antibiotics important to human medicine in all our U.S. restaurants. Healthy chickens, healthy people. Everybody wins. 

And ICYMI, we’ve also committed to sourcing 100 percent cage-free eggs for our breakfast menu by the end of 2016. (Chickens everywhere are rejoicing).

It’s all a part of a journey we call Food for All. For the last decade, we’ve been making continuous enhancements to the quality of our food. This mission is ongoing – and we’re sharing every step of the way with you.
Our commitment to address antibiotic use in our chickens is just one example of how we’re always listening to our fans. We want to make sure we deliver good food for all – good for chickens, good for our fans and good for your Chicken Soft Taco. Now that’s something we can all feel good about.
