The health benefits of chicken products are only attainable if the quality and safety of the meat and eggs are assured. In the production chain of chicken products, many complex parameters affect food quality.
The nutritional value of chicken meat and eggs depends on factors such as environment, age, feeding, packaging, storage, and transport.
Local sourcing promotes the traceability of the food sources and can be a reliable approach to obtaining high grade and safe chicken products. Grading and inspecting food for safety is a requirement under the Food Safety Modernization Act. Working with local suppliers makes it easier to prove compliance.
Proper packaging is also essential in agricultural logistics because contamination can occur when products are transported between collection points. According to the FDA, the right packaging should reduce the risk of chemical breakdown, radiation exposure, and microbial breakdown of food.
