More often than not, the only time we
hear from fast-food restaurants is when they are making some groundbreaking announcement about their food safety procedures or their supply chain. In general, neither are a welcome message for consumers or producers alike.
supports agriculture and wants to work together with farmers and ranchers to market delicious, safe and healthy food.
Wendy’s wants to Work WITH Beef Producers – not take away important technologies like antibiotics. In a press conference at Cattle Industry Convention, [reported on by BEEF Magazine], Wendy’s spokesperson Liliana Esposito said the chain wants to collaborate with producers to refine, reduce and replace antibiotics but they respect that when an animal is sick, it NEEDS treatment. Esposito added, “The best beef comes from healthy well-cared for animals. A sick animal needs to be treated and you won’t hear differently from us.”
you can definitely find a few things at Wendy’s! When I was a young college kiddo, Wendy’s was a cheap lunch I could eat on the go between nursery hours (that’s a plant nursery, not a kid nursery), rodeo practice and classes.
BONUS REASON – Wendy’s is on fire with their social media, which is a fact I erroneously left out in the earlier draft of this post. Suffice it to say, they’ve got some smart whips on their social management team.
I know there are other chains out there that are very supportive of farmers and ranchers such as Domino’s and Culver’s. What others are there? As agriculture stakeholders and producers, we should be giving all of our attention to these establishments which are committed to working with, not against, producers.
