Delicious Dinner...Faster

With consumers' busier lifestyles, Foster Farms set about looking for more ways to help consumers enjoy great-tasting, healthy meals, faster. In 1983, we introduced our Select Servings line of lean boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs, all fresh and faster-to-cook. Today, we've taken the idea even further, providing breast steaks and thin-sliced fillets, making it easier for consumers to prepare a home-cooked meal in less time.
