An Evolution in Sustainable Protein: Perdue Farms New Direct to Consumer Box

I’ll admit it – I was very surprised to see that Perdue Farms was a premier sponsor at ShiftCon 2019. Since when was Perdue known for being organic or sustainable? But I also knew that ShiftCon is not the kind of conference to cut corners when it comes to authenticity and transparency, and it turns out, we all had a lot to learn about “the new Perdue.”

In fact, when I had the opportunity to chat one-on-one with Chris Perdue, the Director of e-commerce (and 4th generation Perdue), I was thoroughly impressed with his honest explanation of the brand’s evolution. He admitted that years ago when folks started demanding more sustainability, humane conditions, and organic processing, the company was still stuck in their conventional ways. But once they started to really listen to their consumers, they made a true commitment to completely changing the way they raised and processed meat and poultry – from their high-end products all the way down.

Over the last 10 years, Perdue Farms has transitioned from conventional chicken & turkey production to becoming the #1 supplier in the U.S. for Organic Chicken as well as a leader in premium Beef, Pork, Lamb, Pasture Raised, Grass-fed, Heritage Breed, Antibiotic Free (No Antibiotics Ever), Non-GMO, Ever, Certified Humane, GAP & more.

Perdue Farms is more than just Perdue chicken. The company actually has a full line of protein products and brands you may already know, including Niman Ranch, Coleman Natural, Perdue Harvestland, Panorama Meats, Spot Farms, Full Moon and more.

And to get these products straight into consumers’ hands, Perdue Farms is launching direct-to-consumer boxes! I had the opportunity to check out the Organics Bundle (Medium), with all certified organic products from PERDUE Harvestland® and PERDUE® Simply Smart.

What’s In The Box

Medium Organic Bundle

What Did We Do With It?

I pretty much only had oranges in the fridge when I decided to cook up the Perdue Harvestland Organic Boneless Skinless Breast, but this turned out delicious. A little rosemary, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

These Perdue Simply Smart Organics Lightly Breaded Chicken Chunks are kid and parent-approved! Only 10 minutes to bake in the oven and the whole family loved them.

Roasted up this Perdue Harvestland Organic Whole (With Giblets) – just olive oil, rosemary, parsley, lemon, and garlic.

We also received Perdue Harvestland Organic Drumsticks plus Perdue Harvestland Diced Chicken Breasts (included free in your first order)

The “Organics (Medium)” box costs $81.99, which is a 10% bundle discount vs. purchasing all products individually. Get 10% Off and free Perdue Harvestland Diced Chicken Breasts on first order!
